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

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

    Vault isn't just an economy plugin. It also keeps track of any numerical information pertaining to a user for a given time period. Brewery would be using it in order to keep tabs on %drunk per user which then diminishes over time. If every plugin had to do that on its own, they would be unmanageably huge.

    Anyone know what the upper limit is for how long effects last? I'm trying to make some difficult to make god brews that give the player 60 minutes of perk time (3600 seconds). This is an example of what I'm putting in the recipe,

          - FIRE_RESISTANCE/3600
          - INCREASE_DAMAGE/3600
          - SPEED/3600
          - JUMP/3600
          - REGENERATION/3600
          - DAMAGE_RESISTANCE/3600

    And when you drink it all the timer reads is dashes, like it is infinite or something. Is it still counting down and I can't see it or is this a bug with MC or the plugin that I need to report in a ticket? Any info would be helpful, thanks.

    Do I really need Vault for this to work? How is it even connected to an economy plugin?

    We changed the config just to keep people from being kicked or temp banned, and now no one is getting drunk >.< Here is our config:

    Also, how can I make a coffee drink to sober people up?
