Saint Arnold (Arnulf) of Soissons had been a career soldier before he became a Benedictine hermit at the Abby of St. Medard in Soissons, France, where he reluctantly accepted the role of Abbot. When the abbey changed bishops, St. Arnold founded another abbey, St.Peter in Oudenburg, Flanders. It was here that he enthusiastically brewed a low alcohol beer that even protected the locals from the plague (from the bad pathogens in the water.) Once when the abbey roof collapsed and destroyed the stored beer, he prayed that the supply be restored, which happily it was.
