Check your fuses, I cannot remember which one is the brake lights, but if you check your fuses, it will be obvious. Look for a break in the metal filament, sometimes a fuse will have popped out, most of them are 8 amp fuses, and cost like ten cents a piece.
There is also an in-line fuse on my 1973 Super Beetle for the reverse lights which is in the engine cavity behind the carburetor, and another in-line fuse under the back seat, but I do not know if your car has those also. It is helpful to have spare fuses in the car anyways, just in case.
