Brewery is a Plugin for an alternate brewing process, including alcoholic Potions.

The somewhat difficult brewing process rewards you with a diversity of Potions, which, through their effects, create a drunkeness that has never existed in Minecraft before.

Learn the art of brewing through fermenting, distilling and barrel aging on your Minecraft server. Experience how, from spring water and wheat, through hard work, a cool beer is created. Distill high-proof liquor, which gets that unique taste after some aging in oak barrels. Celebrate the biggest feasts you can imagine and always keep the cheerful athmosphere. Fill the taverns with laughter and loud music, while the drunkards scuffle on the streets.


  • Brew alcoholic Drinks, that actually can make you drunk
  • Drunk people will stagger, the chat is influenced, effects and more
  • Wake up at /home after a long night of drinking
  • Lower quality brewed drinks have downsides like hangover
  • Process of brewing with different steps like fermenting, distilling, aging
  • Refine the quality, until the Drinks are perfect
  • Master the brewing of even the most difficult Drinks
  • Create your own Recipes including ingredients, properties and creation process
  • Configurable influence on the chat

This Plugin now uses Metrics by Hidendra! This submits anonymous stats about your server (player count, plugin/server version, etc.) to the public statistic website which will provide developers with usage statistics of this plugin. If you don't want this feature and wish to opt-out, you can do so in the /plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml

This Plugin uses an automatic Update Checker. It Checks the CurseForge api for updates to this Plugin at each serverstart. If an Update is found, the Log and Ops are notified. The Update Checker runs in a seperate async thread, so it can never lock-up the Server. If you wish, you can turn the Update Checker off in the config.yml

Check the Wiki for more Information on how to install and use Brewery.

Getting Started

After installing you can simply start brewing, by fermenting ingredients, distilling and aging the ingredients. Check the Wiki for detailled informations about the process of brewing.
To also take advantage of the more advanced features, you may want to have a look at the config, where you can create your own recipes and even alter the word replacements in chat when a player is drunk. By default there are just some basic recipes, that show what settings you can utilize. There are plenty more possibilities to create own recipes such as Gin, Whiskey, etc. You may want to look around on the internet about how the Drinks are made, or create fantasy recipes with funny effects and ingredients.
Most of the good Drinks should be kept secret or have just vague descriptions on how to brew them. That allows players to try around on specific ingredients, so that only certain brewers master the creation of a high quality drinks.

When it comes to drinking, it is nice to define Wakeup Points. These are places in the World where players "wake up" when they log off for a period of time while drunk. These places may be anything like high on a tree, inside a cave, on towers, on small islands or in astonishing buildings.
For best results the places should be distributed over a big area, as the algorithm favors a place near the players current position

    For those of you looking to sell Brewery items in a "Store" I suggest using DTLTrader with Citizens 2. I use them and they are able to handle the brewed items.

    Bukkit seems to be still using the old name for the flower: red_rose You can find every name here:

    Some are actually quite different from the minecraft names. I should look for some kind of translator to translate minecraft names to these bukkit names...

    @Sn0wStorm: Go

    Yeah, I added them and what they should be called to the cooked list. For some reason, it won't let me put any of the new items into the cauldron. My main problem is adding a certain flower to the mix. What would I type to add this flower to it: [CLICK]

    @DjSearX: Go

    Yes you can use milk in recipes. Like with lava buckets, putting a milk bucket into the cauldron gives you back the empty bucken

    @Schneiderism: Go

    It looks good so far, have you added the ingredients to the cooked list below

    @AnnickJean: Go

    Every brewery item has the id of a normal potion, 373, so if the other plugin only checks that, it can not distinguish between normal potions and brewery potions.

    Milk Alcohol?

    I was just messing around with this plugin and I found out that you can put milk into a cauldron. I've been trying to make it so is it a WIP or what?

    I tried adding a recipe for Tequila using Blue Orchids, Melon, and Sugar Cane. When I loaded it up and tried adding melons and orchids to the cauldron, it wouldn't accept them. What am I doing wrong here?

    name: Poor Tequila/Tequila/Hard Tequila
    - SUGAR_CANE/1
    - 38,1/3
    - 360/1
    cookingtime: 3
    distillruns: 6
    color: DARK_RED
    difficulty: 3
    alcohol: 25
    - POISON/10-20
    - STRENGTH/20-40

    In place of item ID for the orchid, I also tried "RED_FLOWER,1"

    Thanks for the help!

    After making a brew persist, where do I find the ID of the item? /iteminfo (chestshop) or /itemdb (essentials) both give me Potion of Poison II. I've looked through the database after making something persist and nada.

    @princeofwalachia: Go

    In the default config file the recipe for "Skunky Darkbeer/Darkbeer/Fine Darkbeer" is the exact same. The 3 different names correspond to the level of quality, "bad/good/great" of the brew. The goal is normally to brew up a "great" brew by following the recipe perfectly. When you mess up and don't follow the recipe perfectly, it will give you one of the lower quality names for the brew. The difficulty rating for the recipe determines how perfect you need to be to get a "great" name. If the difficulty is really high, it is easier to mess up and get a lower quality brew name. If the difficulty is really low, it is harder to mess up and get a lower quality brew name.

    To get the "Darkbeer" name that is "good" you need to mess up the recipe quite a bit when you are brewing it. If 2 recipes are very similar, sometimes one recipe will override another if you mess up your target recipe.

    Okay why doesn't the dark beer work I followed the steps to make the dark beer and put it in the barrel. I have been waiting for 4 hours and it only came out as fine beer not dark beer. It is the same steps to make except the waiting time is different. Can you tell me how it works?

    Every time I restart my server, barrels no longer are barrels and everything in them is lost.
