Gilroy Brewery - 120 years behind the times

Ode to Gilroy

Everyone knows this has gone on too long.
All the meetings. What’s this all about?
Why all the secret negotiation crap?
When they just want Zuma out!

What does he have to bargain with?
Negotiation implies give and take.
So what’ his secret bargaining chip,
When he’s got so much at stake?

If he waits for the next No Confidence,
They all go down the pan.
So what could he possibly offer right now?
Maybe Cyril has a plan.

Jacob wants amnesty for all his crimes.
Jacob just want to walk free.
But no one is going to allow that,
There’s only one way out that I can see.

Jacob must turn State’s evidence.
Against the Guptas who captured the State.
He’s shown self-preservation at any cost;
Time’s up, Jake. Don’t leave it too late.

 

~ Steve Gilroy, 1898

Gilroy Serious

Gilroy Serious

 

The premium dark ale - Gilroy Serious

A rich, strong ale for the serious drinker. The amber and dark malts yields a dark warm claret colour to Gilroy Serious. This is extremely well made and easy to drink. A rare handcrafted masterpiece from the southern hemisphere.

Gilroy Traditional

Gilroy Traditional

 

Gilroy Traditional is a Ruby Ale. 

Our classic ruby ale - a magnificent explosion of flavours on the tongue. Great rustic flavour in the traditional way. A beer to come home to. Handcrafted red ale, elegantly rustic, a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

Gilroy Favourite

Gilroy Favourite

 

Favourite is Gilroy's pale ale.

A superb light ale brewed with paler - golden and amber - malts, and Gilroy's own yeast.  This beer is well bodied, easy to drink - a session beer with a well-balanced finish. Underlying flavours of round summer fruits and slightly caramelised honey.

Gilroy Lager

Gilroy Lager

 

This lager is a European type Lager.

The Gilroy Lager is brewed to the Rheinheitsgebot - using Czeck Saaz and German Halletau hops and Gilroy's wonderful lager yeast, matured for 8 weeks. A well balanced, flavoursome naturally carbonated lager.

A session beer which fills the mouth with great body and a long finish.
