The veteran hit-man has held talks with the club's managing director Rod Petrie about extending his deal, but he has been told that the Edinburgh outfit cannot afford to keep him.
"It looks like I will be leaving Hibs," said Brewster. "Rod (Petrie) told me the club cannot afford anything just now and he will get back to me in June.
"I would say my chances of staying are very slim although I can appreciate Hibs' position when you look at the financial state of Scottish football.
"Hibs have got to keep themselves on an even keel. They have the budget for next season and Rod was very honest in what he had to say and I appreciate that.
"At the same time I have my own situation to look at and it's up to Craig Brewster to find alternatives."
Brewster joined the club in the summer from Greek outfit Ionikos and he admitted he could return to Greece if all else fails.
"I would like to stay in Scotland. Bobby Williamson would like to keep me and I am very happy playing for Hibs.
"But I cannot sit around.
"If nothing happens I would be happy to stay in Scotland but everyone knows clubs do not have the money right now. It's a sign of the times.
"If there's nothing in Scotland for me I will go back to Greece."
Another player who is set to leave Easter Road in the summer is loan signing Gary Caldwell.
The Newcastle United defender has impressed on loan at Hibs, but the club are unable to make his switch permanent.
Caldwell has broken into the Scotland team during his time at Hibs and he has warned he does not want to return to Newcastle and sit on the sidelines.
"Nothing has been decided about my future," said Caldwell. "I'm not sure what's happening but I know the game I've got for Hibs at the weekend will be the last for them.
"My main concern about going back to Newcastle is whether I'll get first team football. Wherever I go I want to be in a first team squad and playing.
"I don't think Hibs are an option. Like everyone else in Scotland they are struggling financially. I've really enjoyed my time here and wish I could stay but unfortunately I can't."
Celtic have been linked with the young defender and if he is not guaranteed first team football at St James' Park they could move to bring him back to Scotland.
