The structure of the title compound, fac-[ReBr(C14H 12N2O)-(CO)3]·CH4O, consists of neutral mononuclear molecular units of distorted octahedral geometry, with the three carbonyl donors in a facial orientation. The remaining coordination sites are occupied by the Br atom, the pyridine N atom and the ketone O-atom donor of the ligand. The molecules pack in stacks of antiparallel tapes, with a network of classical (O-H⋯Br) and non-classical (C-H⋯O) hydrogen bonds between the methanol solvent molecule and the complex molecule.
