AKA The perfect end to a weekend!
Gilroys is a brewery just outside Johannesburg, and is on the Ngwenya Glass premises in Honeydew. Thankfully we booked because it was jam packed!!
I LOVED the place!! It was so awesome to sit outside (albeit freezing) on benches drinking beer, chatting, laughing, eating and listening to live old-school pub music. And yes, I actually had a beer… an entire one… this is highly unusual for me as I can’t normally have more than a few sips… but that Traditional brew that I had was most awesome!!
The kids kept themselves busy with a soccer ball and in the play area (although Bradley declared it small and full of poo… not sure what kind of poo ‘cos I didn’t go check LOL!), and they went beading at one of the stores.
Gilroy himself is on the left, and had a few toasts every hour or so… such fun!! The fun included some poetry and generally a lot of laughs… with part of the entertainment being a haka which one of the patrons tried to copy… was too hilarious!
What a fabulous afternoon!! We’re definitely going back there 🙂 it was the perfect end to a weekend and just what I needed!
