Washington greets the pope with a full session of Congress. New York welcomes him with the United Nations. Philadelphia? We tap a keg. No fewer than 10 specially brewed ales will greet Pope Francis on his visit to Philly this weekend - and what else would you expect from America's holiest beer-drinking city? Yes, the mildly irreverent names may have some believers accusing local brewers of heresy. (The folks at Brewerytown's Crime and Punishment brewery are risking eternal damnation for their salty Jesus Wept gose.)

(They say it's always 5 o'clock somewhere and, well, because their schedules were a little bit hectic this week, it was 5 o'clock in Istanbul when Rich Hofmann and David Murphy got together for Birds Over Beers. Which meant that it was breakfast sandwiches accompanied by Shiner Bock (Rich) and Sixpoint Crisp (Dave) - because, if nothing else, we're all about the authenticity.) Dave: So we're sitting here, drinking beers at 10 a.m. in Center City Philadelphia. And I have to say, at 0-2, I thought there would be more Eagles fans.

It's a thin line between tribute and hokum. On one side, the new Paterno Legacy Series beer from western Pennsylvania's Duquesne Brewing is a heartfelt bow toward the memory of Penn State's popular yet scandalized former head football coach, Joe Paterno. On the other, well, who can forget Three Stooges Beer ? Or Harley-Davidson Beer ? Or Kid Rock American Badass Beer ? Or J.R. Ewing Beer? Or an entire cooler-full of other collectible cans in which the contents were an afterthought to the schlocky labels?

(Every week this season, Rich Hofmann will get together with a colleague from the Daily News, perhaps over a beverage, and talk about what's going on with the Eagles. This week, it's columnist David Murphy attempting to keep the populace from going off the deep end.) RICH: So, do you kick the field goal? Dave: Yeah, I think so. You have to try to go ahead there. Rich: I looked it up - teams trying to hold a lead like that at the end of games give up a score about 30 percent of the time.

PEOPLE WHO SAY they hate pumpkin beer remind me of people who say they never watch TV, as if they're too good for something so unsophisticated. They stick up their noses and piss all over the spicy brew because it's a gimmick, because it's crass, because they're oh-so-busy rereading War and Peace . So, as they repeat the same, tired criticism (You can't drink it in this kind of heat!), they're missing out on some pretty good entertainment. Well, put down the Tolstoy, Mr. Snoot, and tune into six things the pumpkin haters get wrong.

B UZZ: Hey Marnie, I found an Oktoberfest I love: Sierra Nevada. You know this festival is all about beer, right? Marnie: Of course, Buzz, but it's funny that people think of the fall as the beer season when it's really wine season. The historical reason for Europe's fall festivals is to celebrate the harvest. Oktoberfest may be huge in Germany, but if you look around you'll notice that September and October are also the time of year for Weinlesenfests - wine harvest festivals - because this is the time of year that grapes ripen and winemaking begins.

First it was wine. Then beer. Now juice. University City's Invisible Sentinel Inc., developers of microbial detection tools aimed at preventing spoilage, has now entered a deal to help Netherlands-based Refresco Gerber, a European bottler of soft drinks and fruit juices. Refresco's clients include Ocean Spray, Del Monte and Welch's. Refresco will use Invisible Sentinel's Veriflow ACB technology for rapid detection of alicyclobacillus, a bacteria that produces compounds that spoil juice products.

Quake was back at Bok. Daniel "Quake" Gibbons, a proud member of the Class of '93 and an immovable force on the offensive line of the Bok Technical High football team, had read on Facebook about an alumni gathering at a new restaurant atop his alma mater's roof. Gibbons wasn't going to miss it. He was looking forward to busting it up with his old Wildcats teammates, catching up with the cheerleaders, and maybe even running into some of his old auto-body shop teachers. The posting said to bring Bok gear if you had it, so Gibbons, who is 41 and works as a security guard in West Philadelphia, proudly broke out his royal blue 1992 division championship jacket.

FROM TIME to time, I like to check in with the U.S. Patent Office for a progress report on the exciting field of beer inventions. Over the years, we've seen brilliant ideas, ranging from tooth protectors on beer bottles to beer pong tables that keep your beer cold. Honestly, if we could channel some of that ingenuity into, say, theoretical aerodynamics, we'd have those rocket packs by now. So, what's new? Here's a handful of recent patent applications. * Shotgun Accessible Beer Can (#2015-0183547)

WELL, IT'S about damn time. Nearly 25 years after New Belgium Brewing started brewing in Fort Collins, Colo., its beloved Fat Tire Amber Ale is coming to Philadelphia. That makes Pennsylvania the 39th state to get its hands on the brand, behind the likes of Alabama, North Dakota and, I think, Guam. Fat Tire, of course, is a near-iconic brand in craft-beer circles. Brewed by a famously green, socially conscious, employee-owned company, it may not be the highest-rated beer in the world, but - thanks partly to its fun, offbeat logo-it is certainly among its most recognizable.
