The brewery=* tag should be given for restaurants, bars, pubs, and similar POIs for indicating which breweries' beer they have available.

(An actual brewery is tagged with craft=brewery or man_made=works or landuse=industrial+industrial=brewery.)


The normal syntax should be:


If it is selling beer from 2-4 different breweries you can use:


If it is selling beer from several breweries use:


If it is selling beer by one brewery but one special sort of beer from another brewery, you can use:


If the different sorts of beer are sold from different breweries, tag like:


Though beers are often region specific and often have no English translations, their regional name should be used.


A pub which brews beer on site is called a brewpub, and can be considered a kind of microbrewery. Such a pub should be tagged with microbrewery=yes.

A brewpub's beer might be sold only for consumption on the premises, or packaged for retail (off sales), or sold elsewhere as well.


As Belgium has a beer tradition, most pubs offer beers from a lot of breweries. But most pubs are owned by one brewery. In Belgium, this tag will be used for the owning brewery for convenience.
