Is a Bartending License Mandatory

Sawyer Petrick is a screenwriter who has worked as a consultant on the script of the movie The Speech and wrote the second episode of the web series The Look. Apart from being a screenwriter, Sawyer Patrick has also had extensive experience serving as a barback and later doing front-of-house duties like serving diners and handling beverage orders. He is a licensed bartender and holds an EBS certificate from the New York Bartending School.

Many foods and beverage establishments are beginning to demand licenses as a requirement for their staff. They do this to ensure that the bartender knows the fundamentals before serving customers. But not all states in America require their bartenders to obtain a certificate before practicing their craft for pay. Local laws in certain states such as Texas demand that the bartender gets a state-verified certificate to sell alcohol. Certificates like these are primarily on alcohol awareness and preventing the sale of alcohol to minors.

Bartenders do not need a license to become a bartender, and there is no formal bartending certificate in the United States. However, understanding local laws and the requirements of most establishments is necessary for smooth practice. While bartending courses usually contain what is needed to practice effectively in a state, it is expedient to double-check that it meets all local law requirements.
