Lost in translation

Anna was doing her social studies, in which they asked her to look up common last names in the dictionary to see what job had influenced their name. All was fine until the name Brewer.

"Mom. There is only brew and brewery. They don't have brewer."

"Well, then what does the word brew mean?" I prompted.

"To make beer or ale," she read.

"So, one who makes beer or ale would be a....what?" I asked.

"A....alcoholist?"



I think I might need some alcohol before this lesson is finished!
