Brewington Creek rises twelve miles northwest of Medina in south central Kerr County (at 29°56' N, 99°25' W) and flows southeast, through Kerr and Bandera counties, for 7½ miles to its mouth on the North Prong of the Medina River, eight miles northwest of Medina (at 29°53' N, 99°21' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It flows through Edwards Plateau, characterized by flat limestone formations with localized dissection surfaced by shallow, stony soils to clay loam that support open stands of live oak, Ashe juniper, and mixed grasses.
