About the Brewer surname

The surname Brewer is an occupational surname for a brewer of beer or ale, and is of Anglo-Saxon origin. The name derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century verb 'breowan', to brew, and was in Middle English 'brewere', a brewer. 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.
