The Brewer Fieldhouse was a multi-purpose arena located in Columbia, Missouri, and home to the University of Missouri Tigers basketball team prior to the Hearnes Center opening in 1972. Named after Chester Brewer, the building opened in 1929 to expand on the existing 500 seat Rothwell Gymnasium. Both buildings were converted into the Student Recreation Complex, which was renovated in 1987 and again in 2005. The Allman Brothers Band played there in 02/1971 before Duane was killed in a motorcycle accident.
