It seems the product attribute brand_id is not removed from the attribute table. Go to Catalog -> Manage Attributes and remove this attribute else if its already removed then clear the cache.

Clear the cache

Go to var/cache folder and remove all its contents. The easiest way is to run this command on shell. Make sure to change your directory to your document root

 rm -rf var/cache/*

Whenever you installed that extension, a new catalog-product-eav-attribute brand_id has created by the installer script of that extension.

Now you removed the code of this module and erased all assoicated tables. But you forgot to remove the attribute brand_id from the eav-attribute-table eav_attribute.

I think brand_id is of type select-attribute.So most probably it uses a source-model for this attribute which is normally used to specify the options and labels of that attribute. Since you have removed the code, the attribute can't find it's source model and hence you are getting this error.

So to avoid this, you need to completely remove the attribute brand_id. Use this :

DELETE FROM `eav_attribute` WHERE `attribute_code` = 'brand_id';
