SS Minnehaha was bound for Tilbury from New York City when she went aground on rocks off Bryher.
She was carrying various cargo including brand new motor cars, grand pianos and sewing machines, all of which was jettisoned into the water to lighten her bow and free her from the rocks.
Over two hundred cattle ended up in the sea and were guided to Bryher and Samson by local gigs.
Unlike many of our Scilly shipwrecks, SS Minnehaha was repaired and put back into service but in September 1917 was torpedoed and sunk near Fastnet Rock with the loss of forty three persons.
Minnehaha is a light Indian pale ale with an orange citrus hop finish.
