The New York Times > International > International Special > New Pope's Birthplace Becomes a Center of Pride, With Muted Misgivings at the Edges:

"In the joyful din here, there were few dissenting voices concerning Cardinal Ratzinger or his conservative leanings. 'The pope must set a path for the church that he believes in,' said Engelbert Feldner, 69, the town's former brew master. 'He can't bend with the times.'"

And if you were wondering about the culture of the Pope's hometown, note that they have a "Brew master".
