FAQs about brown ale

They may look similar, but brown ales often have a lighter color than stouts, and brown ales have a stronger malt flavor. Stouts usually emphasize hops more, which means they tend to have a higher alcohol content. Brown ales typically have a milder, sweeter flavor than stouts and focus on a more chocolate or caramel flavor profile. Stouts also tend to have a heavier body compared to the medium body of a brown ale, and they mature for a longer period of time.

Brown ales can be paired with a wide variety of food, and some even call them a meal in themselves because they have such a rich, full flavor. Some foods you can consider pairing with a brown ale include:
  • Grilled meats and vegetables, such as a steak or kebabs
  • Chocolate desserts, including a slice of chocolate cake or a brownie
  • Aged gouda cheese
  • Pear fritters
  • Nutty desserts, such as maple walnut cake or peanut brittle
