The Refuge

963 Laurel St

San Carlos, CA 94070

Not only does Refuge in San Carlos serve one of the most beloved pastrami sandwiches in the Bay Area -- thanks to its tedious process of brining, spice-rubbing, smoking, and steaming -- but it also doubles as a Belgian beer bar, which means you can pair your sandwich with a Kwak strong ale served in a coachman's glass. The casual and friendly pub offers more than 100 mostly-Belgian beers with 18 rotating taps, and, if for some reason you didn't come here for the pastrami, a selection of hearty burgers, too.
