Beer of the week: He’Brew Messiah Nut Brown Ale


Beer: He’Brew Messiah Nut Brown Ale

Style: American brown ale

Alcohol: 5.6 percent by volume

Price: About $10 a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles at Total Wine & More

Story: Shmaltz Brewing Co. produces its He’Brew line in upstate New York. Messiah (tagline: "The beer you’ve been waiting for") is an American version of a classic English brown ale, with bitter hops accentuating the nutty flavor of richly roasted malts. Those malts translate into notes of chocolate and coffee, although Messiah remains much lighter on the palate than a porter or stout.

Pairing: Brown ales tend to complement most foods, especially roasted meats and other earthy dishes. For a full-on He’Brew experience, pair Messiah with a cup of mushroom barley soup and a Jewban sandwich (pastrami, roasted pork and Swiss on Cuban bread) from Josh’s Deli in Surfside. L’Chaim!
