Is being a bartender wrong?

Question:

Is being a bartender wrong? My mom wants to start bartending to make some extra money. I think it’s inappropriate and told her so.

Answer:

It is not inappropriate, immoral, or a sin to serve alcohol to customers. The Catechism of the Catholic Church warns against “excess” drinking and encourages “the virtue of temperance,” but does not forbid the consumption or sale of alcohol (CCC 2290).
