The whole molecule of the title compound, C22H28Br2O2, is generated by twofold rotation symmetry. The dihedral angle of the biphenyl moiety is 85.05 (11)°. The hydroxy groups show intramolecular O - H⋯π interactions without any other hydrogen-bond acceptors. In the crystal, there are no other significant intermolecular interactions present.
