He was skip of the team (rink) which won gold at the European Mixed Championships in 2006 and in 2009. Furthermore, Brewster was skip for the team that won a silver medal at the 2011 and 2012 World Championships and vice-skip of the rink that won the bronze at the 2013 World Champs in Canada after finishing in 1st place during the round robin.
