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

    Great plugin! Could you please add compatibility with shops? Every time a player buys a drink from a shop the drink has no effect.

    @lali01: Go

    Das, was Du auf das Schild schreiben musst, hängt von den Einstellungen ab. Für die deutschen Files ist es standardgemäß "Fass", für die englischen "Barrel".

    @devonmartino12: Go

    No idea, never had this issues, could you send me your config files?


    I'm actually more active at Github (name: Feuerstern) and (name: Sataniel), if you experience issues, better better open an issue or use the thread over there if you need my help. And I'm still busy as hell :/

    Hey, ich habe ein Problem. Wenn ich versuche mit dem Schild das Fass zu erstellen klappt es nicht. Ich hab schon alles mögliche ausprobiert und finde einfach keine Lösung. Ich baue das Fass richtig und setzte das Schild unten rechts (beim kleinen) und es kommt einfach nicht die Benachrichtigung "Fass wurde erstellt". Ich hoff jemand kann mir helfen. Grüße

    If I add a new recipe, the server works fine. However, upon server restart all brews lose their effects- they don't give alcohol either. I am able to brew new, functional beverages; however, the old ones lose their effects.

    I saw that someone else had the same problem but hasn't been answered yet. Any idea what causes this issue- and how can we fix it?

    "sex"? xD The permissions work fine, it has to be a configuration error.

    @NoHamNoJam: Go

    I'm too busy to update the plugin with new features, but if a Minecraft update breaks it, I'll fix it, except GriefPrevention support... Their plugin changes far too often for no reason.
