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

    I seem to be having a problem.. When I do the /Brew create command, It gives me the error: No recipe with name: <name> found. I put the number and the name in the <name> position, but it still does not do. I've also been having the issue that I can't use a couldron to brew. When I right click with the materials, it just doesn't do anything.

    Hey, you! Want another virtual life? How about dropping by on my server, Lucia?

    @Faldonboy: Go

    Ive just tested it and it seems to work for me... I cold add sunflowers and rose bushes to the cauldron. Be sure to add an entry to the cooked section without any variation data, like this: DOUBLE_PLANT: SunnyBrew

    @fffizzz: Go

    The plugin does not use Vault (anymore), it uses the standard Bukkit permission. Every Permission plugin that supports Bukkit is supported. I did not test zPermissions, but I see no reason why it should not work.

    I seem to be unable to use DOUBLE_PLANT(and any variation of it) as an ingredient. The cauldron won't accept it.

          - DOUBLE_PLANT,1/14
          - INK_SACK,2/2

    Permissions don't seem to hook to Vault? using zPermissions and made sure I assigned proper nodes to my groups. No one except OP has permission to use anything related to this plugin.

    The new Update v1.3.1 fixes the Barrel Problem! Download it now if you got errors opening Barrels!

  • Avatar of Cortesian Cortesian Jan 06, 2015 at 00:52 UTC - 1 like As you see here, this is an issue caused by WorldGuard 6. Use the old WorldGuard 5.9 or the new Brewery Build Grafe posted there.
