Gilroy Brewery - 120 years behind the times

Ode to Gilroy

 

‘But Mom, lots of people failed the exam’

‘Dad, I’m not the only one caught for bad driving’

This hiding within other’s failure

In Parliament is a sickness that’s thriving.

 

‘We’re not the only ones to be downgraded’

He whined, before the ratings came out!

He was really so sure that we’d be downgraded more

He’d done the damage, so he had no doubt!

 

Jacob you’ll be next for downgrading

No matter how much bullshit and smoke you create

Downgraded from President to convict

And this downgrade comes ten years too late!

 

The poem is for readers’ entertainment and not necessarily the views of the company.

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.
