Brew is a tall man with long flowing black hair and beard. His hair is adjusted with two arrow-like horns pointing out, and a third arrow pointing down on his forehead. His long beard is divided into five separate parts along his square jaw. He wears a light-blue bandanna, a shirt with a cloth on his collar, a pirate sash with pants, and a dark-blue pirate coat with epaulets. Overall, Brew has a bull-like appearance, matching that of his jolly roger.
In his concept art, he had a black nose, but this is omitted in the manga.
Brew is a brave and bold pirate that was willing to put his life on the line to take up arms against Marine Headquarters. He also highly values loyalty and friendship as he chose to stand by Whitebeard's side as they fought a formidable force in their quest to save Ace.

Brew is a fearsome pirate who has managed to achieve an infamous reputation in the New World.
Brew was seen wielding a sword during the Summit War of Marineford, in which he used his sword to attack and defend against a Marine.
Summit War Saga
When Portgas D. Ace was to be executed at Marineford, Brew and his crew joined forces with the Whitebeard Pirates in order to save him from execution. While the Marines were bracing for the arrival of the pirates, Brew and the allied fleet of the 43 subordinate captains caught them by surprise when the fleet suddenly appeared out of nowhere just off the shores of Marineford.
During the battle, the Marines suddenly decided to execute Ace ahead of schedule. Seeing as the Marines had finished their preparations, Brew, Wallem, and Baggaley stood in shock at the Marines' plan to proceed with the execution ahead of time.
Later, as the pirates made their retreat after Whitebeard and Ace's deaths, Brew's ship prepared to set sail and they shouted out to Jinbe to jump on as he was escaping with Luffy. However, Aokiji then froze the water, preventing them from escaping.
- A character that is highly similar to Brew's concept art can be seen in both the manga and anime on the battlefield and giving commands on Brew's ship. In both, the character has Brew's signature hairstyle and similarly has black hair and a long black beard. However, at the same time, another character that possesses the same hairstyle appears in the manga and anime as well. This second "Brew" has neither the black hair nor the long black beard seen in the concept art, but he does have the black arrow nose that is shown in the concept art. This, however, is omitted in the anime, but clearly seen in the manga. Furthermore, the anime also credited this character as Brew in Episode 486. Therefore, there are two characters that match different aspects of Brew's concept art, and as such, it was initially not possible to distinguish which of the two was the real "Brew". It was also likely that both may have been Brew and the different designs may have been a mistake. However, with the release of the Vivre Card - One Piece Visual Dictionary, the first design is considered the legitimate Brew and it remains unknown, if not a design mistake of Brew, who the second figure is, aside from the fact that he is part of Brew's crew.
- Brew's ship was seen amongst the other vessels of the New World pirates allied with Whitebeard. It is a massive ship with a bull figurehead. The crew's Jolly Roger is represented on the largest sail: a skull with the horns pointed down in a way reminiscent of that of a bull's, a pair of crossed bones below the skull, and fire around both sides of the main jolly roger.
