There will be no shortage of material should the venerable doyen of Scottish managers elect to take to his feet to say a few words once the pudding has been taken away and the coffee has been poured.
Brown is 73 years old now but the passing of the years has done little to diminish the memory banks when it comes to delivering anecdote-led verdicts on the great and the good of Scottish football. When it comes to recanting tales from days gone by or giving his thoughts on current-day figures, Brown tends to be as expansive as he is diplomatic.
His close friend Sir Alex Ferguson may have made headlines this week for a fairly damning assessment of some of his former players but that has never been Brown's style. Anyone with recent on-the-record quotes of the former Scotland manager filleting someone in the public eye should consider themselves the proud owner of a genuine exclusive.
Brown, instead, is unfailingly upbeat. As the last man to take charge of Scotland at a major finals - the 1998 World Cup - it heartens him greatly to witness the recent upturn in the national team's fortunes under Gordon Strachan. The draw for the qualifying stage of the 2016 European Championships in France takes place in February and Brown believes the expanded format - 24 countries will participate - and the belief building under Strachan will allow for that long wait for a return to an international tournament to come to an end.
"I'm confident [we can qualify] for two reasons," Brown said. "The first is the way the team is going, the atmosphere he [Strachan] has got around the place and the feel-good factor in the country. The terraces are very positive now. The other reason is that more teams now qualify. There are 54 nations in Europe now and you've got nearly half of those qualifying. I'm praying we're in the top half of Europe. Those two things together leave me feeling quite confident of our chances.
"You could imply criticism of the previous manager [Craig Levein] but I wouldn't do that. You think back to the game against Wales when we had a 'goal' chopped off and what a difference that could have made. One decision can make a huge difference to the whole scenario. You need a bit of luck and the previous guy didn't have any in critical situations. Gordon has come in and got the team going and everyone is behind that."
Brown predicts good times ahead for another Scottish manager, too. It has not been the easiest of starts for David Moyes at Manchester United, the former Everton manager having being given the almost impossible mission of trying to carry on from where the aforementioned Ferguson left off. Eighth place in the Barclays Premier League table after eight games is somewhat below the usual level of expectation at Old Trafford but Brown, who succeeded Moyes as Preston North End manager in 2002, is confident a turnaround in fortunes will not be far away.
"I don't think David deserves to have any pressure on him," said Brown. "It took Sir Alex a wee while down there to get things his own way so I'm convinced David will do fantastically well at Manchester United. I don't have any doubts about that. He's got an inner core of hardness and great family support as well - his father's a sensible big guy and very supportive. The fans' support will be terrific I'm sure and there will be support from Sir Alex as well."
Ferguson remains on the payroll at Old Trafford as director and ambassador and Brown believes that will be a help rather than a hindrance to Moyes. "Alex isn't the kind of guy who would be in any way envious if David went on to win the Champions League. After all he was party to David's appointment. So Sir Alex is a great resource."
And what of the bold Ferguson? Brown has yet to get his hands on his friend's new autobiography but was surprised to learn that Ferguson had used its publication to tell a few home truths. Brown wondered whether the man from Govan even realised he had been disparaging.
"I don't think there will be anything written that he hasn't said to the players. I was at the launch of his last book and someone asked him why he had been critical in it. I don't even think he knew he had been. Sometimes he doesn't realise he's been critical as it's the truth and the honesty of the situation."
Brown admitted even he, 18 months Ferguson's senior, had been on the wrong end of that infamous temper on one occasion. Naturally, though, he elected to keep details of the conversation to himself. "I couldn't tell you the story." He may be marginally less discrete over the dinner table with old friends and colleagues on Sunday night.
