The Gayle brand was conceived in Australia by Virginia Buckworth and launched in 2017. Gayle stands for the belief that we can unite communities through something so simple as sharing a few drinks with mates.
With this in mind, Gayle was created as a unique handcrafted beer and cider, brewed with love, proudly as the world’s first and only independently owned LGBTQ+ owned beverage company. Gayle Ale is independently owned and brewed exclusively in the UK using Australian Galaxy and Victoria’s Secret hops, reflecting the brand’s Australian heritage.
Gayle aims to bring a sense of Pride and a cause for acceptance as we stand together and embrace diversity, equality and self expression. At the very heart of Gayle is a call to action, to love one another and to celebrate the power and beauty of diversity. Love is love, YES! to equality.
“GAYLE IS MORE THAN JUST A GAY ALE, OR AN ADVOCATE FOR LGBTQ+ RIGHTS. GAYLE’S MESSAGE REACHES FAR BEYOND RACE, SEXUALITY OR GENDER. IT’S ABOUT EMBRACING DIVERSITY, OF ACCEPTING EVERYONE’S RIGHT TO EXPRESS THEIR FREEDOMS. IT’S ONE OF UNITY, OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS. OUR STORY IS A CELEBRATION OF BEING HUMAN.” - Virginia Buckworth, Founder
