Sales of a beer brewed in Penryn to commemorate fallen World War One heroes raised money for the town's Royal British Legion.

Dave Wilmot from Granite Rock Brewery presented president of the Penryn legion branch with a cheque for £250 from sales of their Penryn Company Bitter.

Dave said: "The name came about when Frances Williams and I first set up Granite Rock Brewery. In 2013 we were looking for suitable names for our beers, and with our interest in the history of Penryn we focused our minds on the First World War and the forthcoming commemoration in 2014.

"With the invaluable help of Chas Wenmoth and Penryn WW1 Remembered we came up with the idea of local servicemen from Penryn who had served in the Great War portrayed on the beer labels. Tim Hendy designer came up with the four striking designs. We won second place in the Labologists Society Best set of Labels category in 2014.

"Penryn Company is popular in the Packet Station pub on The Moor in Falmouth. The pump clip features one of the servicemen Sergeant William Henry Petersen. Two brothers who were visiting the pub noticed the pump clip and wondered if the picture was of their great grandfather. This proved to be correct and they were pleased to visit the brewery.

"We often wonder what the servicemen would have made of their pictures being on beer labels 100 years after they had experienced the grim reality of the War. We hope they would have approved!"
