A pub in Cardiff, Wales mistakenly initially turned away student priests after staff thought they were in costume. The bar has since named a drink after them, the "Thirsty Priests."

AILSA CHANG, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Ailsa Chang. Getting a beer just got a lot more pleasant for a group of Welsh seminary students. Last week, we told you about a bar that wouldn't serve a group of would-be reverends, mistaking them for a rowdy bachelor party. Well, after getting lots of international attention to their sad plight, the pub has renamed one of its ales the Thirsty Priests, with the slogan saving souls and satisfying thirst. I guess you could say the bar appreciated the seminarians' good spirits. It's MORNING EDITION.
