Have you checked other Brewers in Shelby and Randolph Counties in AL. I am also researching Brewers of Bibb County, AL and my search has led me to look in both those counties. I do not have the census records yet but can tell you the index for 1830 Shelby County lists the following Brewers:
Eleazer, Isam, Jeremiah (this may be the first in AL of my ancestors), Osburn, and SILAS.
Given the early preferance to name sons after fathers and father's brothers, etc. this may be of some use to you.
