Celebrate St Piran's Day with beer and cider from Cornwall

Although born in Ireland, the Cornish have adopted St Piran as one of their patron saints.

He had a millstone around his neck but miraculously he floated across the water to Perran Beach in Perranporth. It was here that he built a small chapel, an oratory amongst the sand dunes. People would come from miles around to hear him preach there.

St Piran also discovered tin too, but quite by accident. A black stone on his fire leaked a white liquid. St Piran had discovered tin. The Cornish Flag, the Flag Of St Piran (white cross on a black background) represents white tin flowing from the black rock, or good overcoming evil.

St Piran is believed to have lived for 200 years. He was fond of a drink and sadly met his end falling down a well.

Stay safe happy drinkers!
