I use brew for a number o things, but not for postgres

we always use enterprise db double clickable installers.   you can get to them by <>
or, start here <>

when you set it up, it asks for passwords and all that stuff, plus you can specify the passwords on the command line if you want to do a command line install from terminal.

its just easier as they’ve done all the work with 99% of the things people need.    and they keep the installers up to date, etc.
