The SS Schiller, a German ferry, wrecked in tragic circumstances on her passage from New York.
She struck the Retarrier Ledges in thick fog and was hit by two large waves which smashed her against the rocks, damaging lifeboats and breaking the hull.
Panic spread quickly and there were extraordinary violent scenes as people tried to save themselves.
Only two lifeboats escaped the wreck with just twenty seven of the three hundred and seventy two people onboard. Another ten survivors were picked up the following day none of them were children.
Schiller is a pale golden ale with delicate hints of spice – probably the closest we will get to a lager for you lager drinkers!
