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

    World edit compatibility would be nice. Also maybe a command that tells you how to make the brew.

    Hey! My server is also trying to make a bar, and making copies of a drink makes all copies of it invalid. This seems like a large concern among users.

    Instead of giving the potions unique ids, which allows it to easily be broken, could you do what Custom Enchants does and just decide if its alcohol by its name and lore?

    It would be really useful for my server and for many other people using this plugin.

    Is there any way to use this with shop plugins? Since it only stores 1 ID of each drink, as soon as someone buys one from chestshop/shopkeepers/other plugin it removes the value, and the rest is just item name and lore but no alcohol.

    A nightclub is essential to my server so I kind of need to know if this can be done. Is it possible to make one item in the database file never dissapear so it could create an infinite loop?

    Hi Jungs, das ist ein echt geniales Plugin! Eine Perle, danke dafür" :) Ich habe spaßeshalber bzw um mir auch etwas Arbeit zu ersparen ein kleines (noch nicht ganz fertiges, siehe Ausgabe von Rezepten und Effekten) Programm geschrieben, um neue Rezepte hinzufügen zu können. Es ist ein Java-Programm und ihr findet es hier:

    Kann man mit dem Plugin als neue Zutaten die erstellten Tränke nutzen? Also zB den Wodka oder Rum oder andere? Quasi wie Cocktail mischen...

    @Nepenthesis: Go

    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.
