Welcome to Gilroy’s Brewery, home of some of the finest beer in Johannesburg. Gilroy beer is natural, without preservatives and brewed according to Irish Purity Laws, as written by Steve Gilroy himself, sometime during the last century.
The beer contains natural/low carbonation – enough to dance on the tongue but cause no distress to the tummy.
The Shield on the Coat-of-Arms bears the three medieval dolphins from the original Irish Family. The beer tankard signifies that we are a brewing family. The Gauntlet, with the raised mid digit, serves as a friendly challenge to any other brewer to make a better beer. (We don’t think it’s possible!)
