She asked, “What’s this with the gauntlet
With the middle finger raised?”
I replied, “The G-spot’s short for Gilroy’s”
And that answer left her dazed!

The finger’s bathed in a cloud of mystery
And means many different things
And with each usage of the gesture
A different joy it brings.

Always smile before you do it
Or it gives the wrong impression
And if people don’t know Gilroy’s
Please use it with discretion!

The Raised Middle Finger, a traditional salute

1. It’s a friendly challenge to other brewers
And not as rude as it appears
We throw the gauntlet as a challenge
For them to match the Gilroy beers.

2. If you desperately need to order a beer
Don’t dally, wait or linger
Simply call a waiter, smile at him
And raise the middle finger.

3. To all folks not drinking Gilroy’s
We don’t get involved with so-called beer wars
Our finger is tempered with sympathy
As we raise it and chorus, “Up Yours.”

4. Then comes the ‘Up Yours’ for laughter
For love and for just feeling good
Let’s get back to the root, give the Gilroy salute
Should you do that? Yes, you REALLY should!

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 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.
