Which signer binary does GPG Suite use?

I am wondering about what pretty much the title says. When I run which gpg in terminal, I get /opt/homebrew/bin/gpg which is also used for signing my git commits. Using GPG Suite I imported my keys from my previous machine via .asc file but they don't seem to be available when calling gpg --list-keys from terminal. Therefore, I am wondering which executable does GPG Suite use?

Best regards,

    Hi Urban,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry that GPG Suite is causing problems for you.

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to run homebrew gpg and MacGPG (whcih comes with GPG Suite) in parallel, since homebrew installs GnuPG 2.3 by default and GPG Suite relies on the long-term-support version of GnuPG 2.2.x

    Since GnuPG itself starts up the services it needs it's also not really possible to install both GnuPGs along side each other.

    I'm sorry we don't have better news for you.
