Brouwershaven, a village in the Dutch province of Zeeland, where there was once a Mennonite congregation. The martyr Valerius de Schoolmeester came from this town. The congregation belonged to the Flemish branch. Delegates from this congregation were present at the Flemish conference at Haarlem in 1649. The congregation had no minister at the time. Later the congregation chose to join the Lamist side. In September 1694 the congregation collected 66 guilders for the brethren in the Palatinate. About 1750 the few remaining members united with the congregation at Zierikzee.
