American Brown Ale  ·  5.8% ABV

A smooth, toasty brown ale, Best Brown Ale is a mainstay in our fall lineup. With hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.


Food Pairings:

Pair Best Brown Ale with hearty, slow cooked foods such as roast pork, stews, carbonnade, pot roast or grilled steak, white bean cassoulet, smoked sausage or grilled salmon.

Also consider chili, roasted goose, liver, meatloaf, Cajun food, bangers and mash or beef (grilled, roasted, broiled, stew & Texas BBQ).

For dessert, go with almond or maple walnut cake, pear fritters or cashew brittle.

Pairs well with cheeses like Colby, Asiago, Parmesan, Romano, aged Gouda, Cheshire, d'Affinois, aged Gruyere, Ossau-Iraty, Gethsemani smoked Trappist, Spanish Manchego (aged), huntsman or goats milk brie (without the rind please).
