Brown ale: A fall favorite

Brown ales are warmly complex and pair well with many fall foods.

Step into the seasonal beer aisle this time of year and you’ll likely find a “sugar-and-spice brick wall” of pumpkin ales and Oktoberfest lagers, said Daniel Fromson in The Washington Post. If you crave an alternative, consider making a brown ale your fall go-to. Brown ales are warmly complex without being heavy and pair well with many fall foods.

Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale American brown lagers tend to be bolder than English variations. This one offers “stout-like flavors of coffee and bitter chocolate.”

Sixpoint Brownstone This lighter-bodied ale goes down easy, with a pleasing graininess that “fades into moderate hoppiness.”

Brekle’s Brown Our taste test’s “clear winner,” from Anchor Brewing, is “smooth and nutty, with hints of maple, caramelized apple, and an apricot-like fruitiness.”
