have And you shouldn't be asking why.

have, because the Browns is a group of people, therefore plural

Well, analysing this sentence probably the Browns is a family, so in this case it relates to a group of people and thus a plural form. “The Browns HAVE a new car.” or “The youngest child of the Browns HAS a new bike.”

Who are The Browns? If it's a group, HAVE; if it's just a name, which relates to something single, HAS.
