Abstract: In the title compound, C6H6BrNO, the Br atom is displaced from the pyridine ring mean plane by 0.0948 (3) Å, while the hydroxyl O atom and the methyl C atom are displaced by 0.0173 (19) and 0.015 (3) Å, respectively. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via O-H...N hydrogen bonds, forming chains propagating along the a-axis direction. These chains are linked by C-H...Br hydrogen bonds, forming corrugated two-dimensional networks lying parallel to the ac plane.
