With my additional savings is there any reason i would want to do a post-tax 401k instead of keeping it in a regular taxable brokerage account?
Let's clarify what you mean by "post-tax 401k".
First there is the Roth 401k, which behaves like a Roth IRA -- money that you contribute is taxed, but you pay no taxes on earnings when you withdraw them in retirement. However, a Roth 401k shares the same contribution pool as a Traditional 401k, so if your goal is to invest more money, this is not helpful -- every dollar you contribute to a Roth 401k is one less dollar you can contribute to a Traditional 401k, and vice versa.
The second is rarer, and is not offered by many 401k providers; it is called spillover contributions, spillover elections, or excess elections. In this case (which, again, most 401k providers do not currently support), you can contribute money in excess of the normal contribution limit ($18,500 in 2018, $19,000 in 2019) to a Traditional 401k; however, it is not tax-deductible like normal contributions are.
On the face of it, this is a bad move: you would pay income taxes on any earnings, which will be more than the long term capital gains you would pay on any earnings if it was just a brokerage account.
However, being in a 401k, it can be rolled over into a Traditional IRA (though it would have the same problem), or into a Roth IRA. Since it has already been taxed, it generates no new taxes to convert it to a Roth IRA, and now any growth will be created tax free. Since the amount of spillover contributions you're allowed is quite large (in 2018, $36,500 minus whatever employer match you may have had), it functions very, very, very much like an additional, and quite possibly very large, Roth IRA contribution. This process -- making spillover contributions, and then rolling them over into a Roth IRA -- is called the megabackdoor Roth.
Rolling the money over into a Roth IRA does require either that your 401k provider allow in service withdrawals, or that you leave your employer, however. If your 401k provider does not allow in service withdrawals, and you plan on staying with your employer for a significant number of years to come, the megabackdoor Roth may not be an appropriate choice.
More information on the megabackdoor Roth can be found at Bogleheads or at the Mad Fientist.
I can withdraw the money to invest in buy & hold real estate or other asset classes
It can be withdrawn without penalties (but with taxes) for expenses outside of what an emergency fund would cover.
Be aware that, as with other Roth IRA conversions, five years after you convert the money to a Roth IRA (either from a Roth 401k or via the megabackdoor Roth) you can withdraw that amount (though not any earnings) at any time without penalty.
