Barbecue Beef Brisket Coming To Starbucks

Ever wanted to buy barbecue at Starbucks? Well, you'll soon be in luck: The coffee chain is in the process of rolling out a new barbecue beef brisket sandwich nationwide.

The company is beginning a summer menu rollout, and wants to offer customers options that are "perfect for spontaneous picnics and after work snacks," as they explained in a press release.

Enter the new barbecue beef brisket sandwich. This hearty sandwich comes on San Francisco-style sourdough with roasted onions braised in Gordon Biersch Blonde Bock Beer and is topped with Sonoma jack cheese. The recipe is inspired by Starbucks' West Coast roots, and the sandwich's ingredients are sourced primarily from Northern California. 

According to Starbucks, the beef brisket is smoked for over seven hours before being mixed with barbecue sauce.  The sandwich checks in at 510 calories, 23 grams of protein, and 22 total grams of fat.

You'll find this sandwich at 3,400 major metropolitan Starbucks stores all summer; it'll remain a seasonal offering for the time being.
