About: Chrysos Chrysos is a 100% barrel-aged saison, featuring Goose Island’s Sofie base aged in Karamoor’s 2013 Cabernet Franc barrels. While Sofie is partially barrel-aged, Chrysos is 100 percent barrel-aged, bringing out more of the oak-heavy characteristics of the barrel and increasing the earthy notes that come from the Brettanomyces yeast.  Chrysos was stored in a warm barrel warehouse, in order to have the beer in an environment which encourages growth of the Brettanomyces.  
 
Chrysos Availability: Chrysos will be available via draft-only at Osteria as well as other locations in the Vetri Family of Restaurants including: Amis, Alla Spina, Lo Spiedo in the Philadelphia Navy Yard and Pizzeria Vetri (2 Philadelphia locations).
 
About Goose Island: Sofie Goose Island Brewing Company is one of Chicago’s original craft breweries – founded in 1988. Sofie, one of Goose Island’s vintage ales, is a sparkling Belgian-style saison that is wine barrel-aged with handzested orange peel. Spicy white pepper notes contrast the citrus tartness and the light, refreshing, creamy vanilla finish will excite those fond of Champagne.
 
About Karamoor: 2013 Cabernet Franc Karamoor Estate Wines is a winery in Fort Washington, Penn. with some of the most acclaimed wines on the east coast. Chrysos was aged in 2013 Cabernet Franc barrels – Karamoor Estate’s most popular wine with flavors of black cherry, oak toast and fresh herb.
