For 36 years, Brewer served as a member of the United States Army, including six tours in Afghanistan.[3] Brewer was awarded two Purple Hearts.[4] During his service, Brewer was severely injured by a grenade, losing his eye and suffering shrapnel wounds.[5] Brewer was elected to the Nebraska Legislature in 2016, succeeding Al Davis.[6] In 2017, Brewer agreed to pay a $500 fine after the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission found that he made a 500-mile campaign trip on horseback without disclosing funds.[7]

As a legislator, Brewer has focused on veterans issues, sponsoring a bill to provide tax breaks to veterans.[8][9] Brewer has advocated against Medicaid expansion, stating "These programs will each be trying to protect their piece of the budget pie. When the music stops, some of them won’t have a chair. It’s unavoidable."[10]
