CAPE MAY, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey brewery is releasing a limited edition beer to commemorate Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia next month.

Cape May Brewing Co. co-owner Ryan Krill says his company is brewing 500 gallons of YOPO, or “You Only Pope Once.” The pope-inspired beer is a hoppy pale ale with 5.5 percent alcohol content and will only be available on draft.

Sales representative Justin Vitti says the beer pairs well with a nice cut of Argentinean beef - calling to mind Francis’ home country.

Krill says the beer will get a laugh from pop culture enthusiasts, but it’s also a tasty brew in its own right.

The beer will be available at the brewery’s tasting room in the Jersey shore town along with watering holes throughout Philadelphia and New Jersey beginning Sept. 21.
