The brother of former Collingwood full-forward Ian Brewer started his career more than a decade after his brother had ended his.
Graduating through the Fourths, then the Under 19's after one season Brewer played just seven Reserves games before making his senior debut, winning the Best First Year Player award and earning three Brownlow votes in his first season.
In an era when the Demons cried out for a champion full-forward, Brewer was often the closest they had despite his slight frame. He led the club goalkicking three times (despite missing the last three weeks of 1973 with glandular fever) and was renowned as a strong mark and a good kick.
Brewer moved to Collingwood in 1979 in exchange for John Dellamarta, Wayne Gordon, Phil Carman and cash. He played in their losing Grand Final sides of that year and 1981 amongst 47 games - his most famous moment in a Pies jumper was kicking the goal that won them a final against Fitzroy in 1981.
Brewer kicked 151 goals in 34 matches with the Zebras including a 94 goal season in 1984. That year included a 15 goal haul against Dandenong, 12 against Coburg and 10 against Springvale. He captained their 1985 Premiership side before joining Waverley in 1986, where he remained until the end of 1987.
