1. ‘ Italian Beef
I like to pair my Italian Beef sandwich with a good, old-fashioned American ale. There’s something about the simple, yet flavorful, combination of beef, onion, tomato, and melted mozzarella that just goes perfectly with a crisp, refreshing beer. I find that the maltiness of the ale complements the sweetness of the beef and onion, while the beer’s bitterness helps to balance out the sandwich’s richness.
Of course, there are many different types of beers that you could pair with an Italian Beef sandwich. If you’re looking for a more traditional option, you could go with an Italian lager, such as Peroni or Birra Moretti. These beers have a light, clean flavor that pairs well with the sandwich’s simple ingredients. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you could try pairing the sandwich with a Belgian ale, such as Leffe or Stella Artois. The beer’s fruity, spicy notes add a touch of complexity to the overall experience.
Ultimately, the most important thing is to choose a beer that you enjoy drinking and that enhances the flavor of the Italian Beef sandwich. Whether you prefer a crisp lager or a complex ale, there’s a beer out there that’s perfect for this classic sandwich.

4. ‘ Sergio’ by Clown King Brewing Company
Sergio is a special beer for everyone at Clown King. It’s a passion project, born out of a desire to create a beer that pairs perfectly with one of our favorite foods: Italian Beef.
The challenge was to create a beer with enough flavor to stand up to the rich, spicy, and savory flavors of Italian Beef, but not so heavy that it overpowers the tender, fatty, and delicate beef. We wanted a beer that is crisp and refreshing, but with enough body to hold up to the beef.
To achieve this, we used a blend of American and Italian barley malts, with a touch of rye for spice. We hopped it up with some American hops, but kept the bitterness low to let the malts shine through. The result is a rich and complex beer with notes of caramel, chocolate, and a touch of spice.
5. ‘ Parmesan Bro’ by The Bruery
Parmesan Bro, a beer by The Bruery, is a great pairing for Italian beef because of its creamy, cheesy flavor that balances out the salty, savory beef. The light, crisp finish is also a nice contrast to the rich, hearty beef. This beer is a great way to round out an Italian meal.
