(Chicago, IL) – What is Marisol you ask?
This past summer, Goose Island Beer Co. collaborated with chef and author, Rick Bayless, on a beer to compliment the cuisine at Bayless’ Chicago-based restaurant, Frontera. Hop Cast got the scoop on how the beer came to be and what menu items inspired it (see video below or larger). Just speculating (nothing official) but I would guess that these 22 oz. bottles will be an exclusive offering at Frontera and perhaps the Goose Island brewpubs.
The Chicagoist summarizes the brew well enough: “Marisol is a Belgian golden ale, spiced with tangerine zest, coriander and ugli fruit. That last ingredient’s the doozy. Ugli fruit, a bastard hybrid of Seville orange, grapefruit and tangerine, is indeed ugly.”
