|“||I finally have it in my hands. "BREW". With this, I will be able to collect everything......with just this one forbidden fruit..||”|
—Noah regarding obtaining "BREW", Salvage (Part 1)
"BREW" ("BREW" ("ブリュー"), Buryū), also called The Tempest (波乱, Haran), is perhaps the most powerful Demon Tool created by the Sorcerer, Eibon. According to Noah, both the Book of Eibon and "BREW" form the "sum of Eibon's wisdom".
Eight hundred years before the start of the series, BREW was located on the Lost Island and was thought to have been destroyed by an accident that annihilated the entire facility and its population along with it. This was all caused by Arachne Gorgon, who wanted to erase it from that era after she collected its blueprints. This, however, was not enough to destroy Eibon's greatest creation.
A significant battle occurred between the forces of the DWMA and Arachnophobia over the possession of BREW on the Lost Island. At first, it is thought that Arachnophobia won the battle but, ultimately, it was Medusa Gorgon who managed to obtain BREW. She had Eruka and the Mizune sisters take it unnoticed during the battle and they replaced it with a fake one.
BREW was given to the DWMA by Medusa as a way to gain their trust so she could work with them to take down Arachnophobia.
Operation: Capture Baba Yaga's Castle
BREW was given to Kid by his father, likely to be used in his upcoming battles while undertaking the mission. When Kid stored away a soul, BREW reacted and emitted a blue light. When Kid later battled against Mosquito, BREW reacts and awakens Kid's dormant powers. This was enough to defeat Mosquito. Later on, both Kid and BREW are sucked into The Book of Eibon by Noah.
Dark Side of the Moon
Noah retained BREW within the Book of Eibon. Following the death of that iteration of Noah, Gopher escaped with the Book of Eibon before Maka Albarn could retrieve it. As Noah and the Book were extensions of the will of The Table of Contents, these materials were inherited by the Wrath iteration of Noah.
When Maka Albarn faced Asura during this lunar battle, she managed to slice into the Kishin and enter him. There, Maka not only found the Book of Eibon but reunited with Crona—and Maka Chopped them with that book. Crona, by that point, regained consciousness against madness. Desiring to save the world from Asura—not for that world, but because it is what Maka would want—Crona instructed Maka to find within the Book of Eibon BREW itself. While Maka followed the path of souls that Soul Eater left behind as a guide out of Asura, Crona empowered BREW from within Asura so that his Black Blood would be expelled and form a barrier around the Moon. Upon Maka and Soul's escape, this Black Blood barrier successfully wrapped around the Moon, imprisoning Asura, saving the world from the Kishin, but keeping Crona, the Book of Eibon, and BREW trapped within this Black Blood lunar barrier as well.
"BREW" is a bright, cubic demon tool with many markings, possibly ancient writing or text.
According to Arachne Gorgon, "BREW" is by far a much more powerful demon tool than the others; she even claimed that the tool was Eibon himself and knew it was highly sought out by both the Witch Order and Death. This tool was not only sought out by the aforementioned but The Table of Contents, utilizing Noah (Greed) and having the Icon's prime directive be to secure the tool. The Demon Tool itself is highly regarded; even a Shinigami such as Death once commented he was worried about how Gopher manage to escape with the Book of Eibon containing "BREW" and mused it could easily spark a four-way fight for the Kishin, Asura.
Despite its value, however, its true powers are privy to many, only understanding the fact that it's a powerful demon tool. It seems only some of the Great Old Ones and the Table of Contents as well as Crona, after commenting they witnessed its "terrible combinations", truly know and understand its power.
According to Mosquito, one of its abilities is the amplifications of the Soul Wavelength, which was great enough to connect one of the Lines of Sanzu, giving Kid enough power to contend with the Bloodsucker whom he previously stood no chance against. Giriko also used "BREW" to mature a fetus to his then current female form. However, true to its name, its actual power, according to the Table of Contents, is the ability to absorb and combine two things into one.
