Is it possible to and how do I get a list of all the apps installed on my Mac using Homebrew? I am not interested in apps installed outside of Homebrew.

brew list

Running brew list will show a list of all your installed Homebrew packages.

You may use brew list | grep 'package-name' or if are looking for specific package.
brew list 'package-name' also works and provides additional information.
