Sounds of an Australian summer: cricket on the radio, barbeque sizzle, beer-can fizz and the soft crunch of a Golden Gaytime.
By Ben Tyers10th Nov 2017
Last week we had the privilege or ordering and trying a beer called Golden Stout Time, a beer that promised to have tones that hark back to the Golden Gaytime you enjoyed as a child, and the Unicorn that you’ve probably enjoyed this month.
South Australian brewer Big Shed Brewing brews Golden Stout Time along with many other beers in their core range, from the Kol Schisel, the F Yeah American Pale Ale, and the ultra-hoppy Californicator amongst others.
We got in touch with Craig from Big Shed Brewing to find out a bit more about Golden Stout Time.
What gave you the idea to brew a Golden Gaytime themed beer?
“The idea came from watching a cooking show where one of the contestants made a ‘deconstructed Golden Gaytime’. I looked at the ingredients and thought that maybe the flavours could be tasty in a stout. It was coming up to GABs (Great Australian Beer Spectapular) and we wanted an idea for our festival beer. This ended up being that beer. It was tasted the 1 st time there and it went mental. We’ve been making it ever since.”

Our first port of call at this year’s GABS in Melbourne was to say hello to Jason and Craig at the Big Shed stall (and try a glass of their Fresh Yeah APA if memory serves correctly). At the time, they were rather excited about the prospects for their GABS beer in the People’s Choice vote. Their take on the Golden Gaytime ice cream was bringing lots of: „Wow! It really does taste like a Golden Gaytime!“ gasps from drinkers and was scoring well too.
In the end, the beer ended up polling third out of well over 100 entries as the award went to BrewCult’s fellow sweet stout, Milk and Two Sugars. But, they tell us, Golden Stout Time has ended up with a higher rating on Untappd than the People’s Choice winner (although they refrained from adding: „So there.“).
Its popularity was such that when they asked the online world if they should brew another batch the virtual applause was deafening. So they did. Kegs are on their way to venues and bottles will follow very soon. For those familiar with Golden Gaytimes, it tastes like one of those in beer form. For those that aren’t, they added cacao nuts, rice and specialty grain to the base beer to create a honey aroma then added lactose (milk sugar) for sweetness.
