Pope Benedict's favorite beer

It would warm a German's heart: the Pope's favorite beer, apparently, is Franziskaner Weissbeer, a wheat beer brewed under the Franciscan label. He also likes an occasional glass of excellent wine from the Piedmont, says Manuela Macher co-owner of the Cantina Tirolese, a Bavarian restaurant near the Vatican where Pope Benedict XVI, before he was elected Pope, was a regular.
