Brest (/ˈbɹɛst/; Brest: eith-berest [ejθ beˈrest] or brestig [ˈbrestig]) is an a posteriori brittonic altlang spoken in rural areas of northwestern France.

It exhibits notable germanic influence and substrate, along with many borrowings from both a substrate germanic language and French. It is believed by some to have arised after the creation of a creole in the area, although many scholars dispute this vehemently.
