Notes

This is one of the best sandwiches on the planet. The corned beef is braised in Rogue Brutal Bitter. If that weren’t enough, the sauerkraut is soaked in Rogue Shakespeare Stout. Pair this sandwich can be paired with a hoppy beer such as the Brutal Bitter or Eugene City Brewery’s 100 Meter Ales. It can also hold up to stronger ales such as Rogue Imperial Red or Imperial IPA ales.
