Homebrew is a package manager for Mac OS X that builds software from its source code. It includes a version of PostgreSQL packaged by what it refers to as a formula. This type of installation might be preferred by people who are comfortable using the command line to install programs, such as software developers.

Typical use looks like

$ brew install postgresql

This install the command line console (psql) as well as the server, if you'd like to create your own databases locally.
