A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

You are best advised to look for another work, for as a conscientious Muslim, you cannot help promote or condone alcohol consumption, which is the enemy number one of humankind.

A Muslim should be careful about how his work makes a difference in the world. You should ask: What kind of a legacy I will be leaving behind in this world. Did my work contribute towards making this world a better place, or did you instead contribute to making it worse?

Almighty Allah knows best.
