Origin of brasserie

  • French from brasser to malt, brew from Old French bracier from Vulgar Latin braciāre from Latin brace malt of Celtic origin

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Borrowing from French brasserie, from brasser (“to brew”), from Old French bracer, from brace 'malt', from Gaulish brace (compare Welsh brag, Scottish braigh); akin to Latin marcēre 'to wither, droop', marcor 'putrification', Old Norse mǫrr 'suet, tallow', Lithuanian mèrkti 'to macerate, soak flax'.
