About the Brewster surname

The surname Brewster is an occupational surname for a brewer of beer or ale, and is of Anglo-Saxon origin.

Until the 13th Century, the name 'Brewster' was the feminine equivalent of 'Brewer', although after that date the term was used equally for male and female brewers.
