We have a few of the Gilroy Limited edition Guinness Cans that were created to pay tribute to the British Artist John Gilroy who was best known for his comical and colourful advertising campaigns for Guinness that he created over a period of four decades. The style that we have is the lobster , which paid tribute to his “There’s nothing like a Guinness with Lobster”.
Gilroy’s work for the brand dates from the 1930s to the 1960s, and includes the famous “My goodness, My Guinness” campaign. Featuring a hapless zoo keeper it went on to become one of the world’s longest running campaigns.
To celebrate what would have been Gilroy’s 120th birthday. The brewery released a series of Gilroy Limited edition Guinness Cans featuring some of the artist’s most enduring designs. The series includes an illustrated toucan; a symbol that has been associated with the Guinness brand.
Cans are past their best before date.
