Brewster is a pigeon in the Animal Crossing series who operates The Roost, a café. He first appears in Animal Crossing: Wild World and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name, a real-world surname, is a pun on brew, a slang term for coffee.



Brewster is a dark turquoise pigeon with a yellow beak, pink feet, and a large mustache separated by his beak. He wears a black vest and bowtie, a white apron, and round glasses.


Brewster is reserved, saying little to the player and showing little emotion. One exception to this is if the player opts to let their coffee cool before drinking it; Brewster becomes shocked and ridicules the player for not drinking it hot.

Brewster has a deep voice, similar to that of cranky villagers.


In Wild World and City Folk, after the player talks to Brewster for a while, over a course of a few weeks, he will tell them 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.


In Wild World[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, Brewster owns The Roost, where 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.

In City Folk[edit]

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."

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Brewster continues to run the The Roost, which 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.

In New Horizons[edit]

Brewster was added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in an update released on November 4, 2021, reprising his role as the owner of The Roost. It was revealed in a teaser during the September 23, 2021 Nintendo Direct.[1] Further information on Brewster's role was revealed during the October 15, 2021 New Horizons Direct.[2] In order to build The Roost, the player must talk to Blathers, find Brewster on one of the Gyroid islands during Kapp'n's boat tour, and then return to Blathers to inform him that they found Brewster. The museum will be closed the next day for construction, and once construction is complete, The Roost will be located next to the art exhibit.

Additionally, he makes a cameo on the back of K.K. Slider's guitar, alongside Dr. Shrunk. In the initial release of New Horizons, lazy villagers would sometimes mention Brewster, but this dialogue was removed by version 1.2.0.

Brewster's poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting him to Photopia via his amiibo.

In Animal Crossing Plaza[edit]

Brewster appears as a Miiverse stamp in Animal Crossing Plaza.

In Pocket Camp[edit]

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 to 19,380 cm, they will obtain the Brewster Pumpkin item.

In Gekijōban Doubutsu no Mori[edit]

Other appearances[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Brewster appears as a trophy and a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and will sometimes be a spectator on the Smashville stage.




Description 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.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Brewster once again appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and sometimes will be a spectator on the Smashville and Town and City stages.




Description 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.

    • The "pigeon milk" he serves upon befriending the player is likely a reference to real-life crop milk, a nutritious secretion produced by the crops of parent birds to be fed to their offspring. Pigeons and doves are some of the most well-known species to produce crop milk, so it is often also called pigeon milk.
