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

    Is there any chance a Update is coming?? We use to use this in 1.7 and since we made move to 1.8 the barrels do not seem to work right, it might be clashing with Grief Prevention.

    Either way Love the plug in and want to get it back for our server.

    Hi, if i add a new receipe in the config it all works fine. I can brew them and they do all effects i want. But i have the problem that all already brewed drinks dont work anymore after i added a new receipe.

    for example: xXNoobLPHDXx got a chest with 20 bottles of beer i add a new receipe and after the server restart this 20 bottles are useless but he can make new beer and it works

    Would be nice if we can edit the [Brewery] prefix :D

    If you could make it recognise chest shop and allow people to sell using that. It would be awesome! Thanks for the plugin.

    Im really confused on creating recipes.. ive done the same as all other drinks, just changed the items to cook and name but im getting colored brew and that's it which just gives straight up poison, could you add a detailed instruction on adding new recipes please?

    @Flashera: Go

    I might add HeroChat, but why should some channels not be affected?

    Players can remove drunkeness, by default bread and milk do lessen the drunkeness. Look in the config to add items or set them to remove 100% drunkeness if you want.

    You can set in the config which commands are affected by drunkeness.


    The selling thing is not easy, but you should be able to sell persisting potions with shopkeeper. I will look into ChestShop and see if i can make it recognize brews.

    Would be great if HeroChat was an optional dependency and you could configure the channels whose chat is affected in a string. Also, I would like a way for players to be able to remove drunkenness themselves (like through milk. Otherwise, I don't see any problems with the plugin.

    Note: if not done already, and I don't know since my server is under development, make sure drunkenness does not affect PMs.
