In Awasi, the result saw Tusker remain second on the table with 31 points, a point behind champions Gor Mahia who have two games at hand.
Hashim Sempala opened the goal hunt two minutes after kick-off, then Timothy Otieno followed up with a brace, netting in the 10th and 20th minutes before midfielder Humphrey Mieno scored a minute to half time to grant the Brewers a 4-0 comfortable lead at the break.
