The Brewer is located on a 13 meter high instrument platform in an open field at Research Triangle Park, a semi-rural locale between the cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The surrounding forest is a mixture of pines and hardwoods which obstruct the horizon by less than 6 degrees. There are instruments located on the north side of the platform that obstruct the sky somewhat. A 30-m meteorological tower located about 15 meters to the SE may interfere with some morning direct sun measurements.
