In days of old the right hand was called Dexter and the left was called Sinister. In Gilroy lore, when you raise your right-hand fist with the extended mid-finger (performing the Gilroy Salute) and shout ‘Up Yours’ it’s a friendly greeting. However, if the left is raised, ‘Up Yours’ takes on a more sinister or offensive attitude.
And so, sing this poem to the Christmas carol of ‘Good King Wenceslas.’
Jacob Zuma once looked out
From his Nkandla tower
Corruption lay all round about
‘Cos Jacob had the power.
Brightly shone his bank balance
Though the economy was cruel
When a Gupta came in sight
To steal the country’s fuel.
‘Shaun Abrahams come and stand by me
‘Cos Pravin must go down
I must control the Treasury
And you’re my perfect clown.’
Brightly shone the SABC
When shifty got the boot
So to Jacob and his band of trash
We give the Gilroy ‘left’ salute.
The poem is for readers’ entertainment and not necessarily the views of the company.

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 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.

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.

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.
