Brewster is a character who works in The Roost at all hours of the day in the museum. His name is a portmanteau of "brew" and "rooster", or he could be named after Sir David Brewster. He is a quiet, reserved pigeon, specifically a rock dove, with an interest in coffee and, in Animal Crossing: City Folk, in collecting Gyroids. He is deep-voiced in all games, like cranky villagers. He sells a random mug of coffee a day at 200 Bells. He prefers the player to drink the coffee as soon as it is given to them, and will be shocked if the player responds with "It's got to cool". In Animal Crossing: Wild World, he will admit he owns sugar, but only enough for himself, but will be shocked if the player refuses the offer of it.


After talking to him for a while, over a course of a few weeks, he will tell the player his story, which suggests he used to own a coffee shop in the City before moving to the town to open up a small business in the museum, after meeting Blathers.


Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

Brewster WW.png

Brewster's role in Animal Crossing: Wild World remains the same throughout the series. He will serve the player a cup of coffee a day for 200 Bells and be present when other special visitors and villagers are in The Roost. He will also be present when K. K. Slider is performing. After buying coffee for a while, he will offer special drinks which may include pigeon milk. At first, Brewster is reserved towards the player, however, he begins to open up towards the player after they have bought coffee for a while.

Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

Brewster CF.png

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, once the player becomes friends with him, (usually after seven cups of coffee), he will offer to store the player's Gyroid if the player is holding one while speaking to him. He will store one of each Gyroid when spoken to by talking to him from across the bar (not sitting on the stool). He will also offer a shot of pigeon milk, like he did in Wild World. On Valentine's Day, he will offer the player hot chocolate instead of coffee, and will say "Happy Valentine's Day!" instead of the usual "Thanks".

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Brewster continues to run the The Roost Café that can be built as a Public Works Project. When the player sits down, he will offer to brew a cup of coffee for them, allowing them to choose the kind of coffee beans, how much sugar, and how much milk they would like. However, beginning with the player's fourth purchase of coffee, they can choose their usual blend of coffee or they can change the blend. In addition, after purchasing three cups of coffee, the pigeon will begin to allow the player to take their coffee to go.

Upon purchasing seven cups of coffee, Brewster will allow the player to work a part-time job behind the counter as a barista, making coffee for the town's special characters and villagers. Depending on how well the player does, Brewster may give them normal, good, or superb coffee beans. Additionally, as the player successfully completes orders, Brewster will give the player pieces of furniture, including Brewstoid Gyroids.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp[edit]

Brewster Pumpkin

In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Brewster appears to run the Brewster's Sweet Harvest flower event, giving the player various items from the Vineyard series by bringing him Bumbledrops, which are only attracted by growing Berrypedals. Additionally, Brewster can appear directly in the campsite by crafting Brewster's Stand. During Fishing Tourney: Pumpkins, if the player reached a total size goal between 15,690 cm - 19,380 cm, they will obtain item Brewster Pumpkin.

Doubutsu no Mori (film)[edit]

Brewster has a small role in Doubutsu no Mori (film). He first appears when Ai enters The Roost to deliver a package for a villager and speaks only after Sally moves.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Brewster appears as a trophy and will sometimes be a spectator on the Smashville stage.

Brewster Trophy Brawl.png #275 Brewster
The proprietor of the Roost, a coffee shop in the basement of the museum. He's very closemouthed, preferring to let the coffee he brews speak for itself. The Roost is also visited from time to time by other residents. If you drop by frequently, Brewster will warm up and begin to engage in conversation.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Brewster once again appears as a trophy and sometimes will be a spectator on the Smashville and Town and City stages.

NTSC-U: If you stop in the Roost, you'll spot Brewster behind the counter, ready to serve you a cup of his original blend. You know you're a regular when Brewster becomes slightly more talkative. Never too aloof, never too familiar, he's as comfy to have around as a pigeon-milk latte.

PAL: Stop in at the Roost to see Brewster behind the counter, ready to serve you a cup of his original blend. You know you've become a regular when he starts being a bit more chatty. He's never too aloof, never too "in your face" - he's just nice to be around whenever you feel like having a pigeon-milk latte.
