Gilroy Lager

lagerThis 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.

Gilroy Range

Real Ales and a Lager - are natural, unpasteurised, without preservatives and brewed to the Irish Purity Laws, as written by Steve Gilroy himself sometime in the last century. 

Natural / Low carbonation - enough to dance on the tongue but cause no distress to the tummy. 

The Shield on the Gilroy 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 serves as a friendly challenge to any other brewer to make a better beer.
