Carl Thomas Brewer (October 21, 1938 – August 25, 2001) was a Canadian ice hockey defenceman. He had attended De La Salle College (Toronto) prior to his hockey career.

Brewer started his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1958. He also played with the Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues. He won three Stanley Cups with Toronto in 1962, 1963 and 1964. In 1966 and 1967 he played with the Canadian National team, winning a bronze medal at the 1967 world hockey Championships. His brief stint in HIFK made such an impact on Finnish hockey that he was inducted to the Finnish Hockey Hall of Fame in 2003.

In the 1990s, Brewer played a major role in seeing former NHL Players' Association boss Alan Eagleson convicted and sent to prison for racketeering, fraud and embezzling.

Brewer died on August 25, 2001 following a battle with heart problems.
