Profile: Bell’s Best is a great example of the American brown ale style. Unlike many of its weaker British brown ale cousins, it has a deep roasted malt character, coupled with a smooth cocoalike bitterness that’s perfect for the fall and winter months. The russet color seems to fit the fall season, too. And at 5.8 percent alcohol by volume, Bell’s Best is a fine beer for an afternoon at the pub.

Pair with: American brown ales make a wonderful match for smoked or grilled meats. Try Bell’s Best with the rich, slow-cooked flavors of brisket, pulled pork or spare ribs, or a wood-grilled steak.
