WASHINGTON (AP) — The group that represents major brewers is pushing for more information on labels about what’s in your beer.
The Beer Institute said Tuesday that it’s pushing members to reveal more details on labels, packaging and websites about ingredients, calories, carbohydrates, protein, fat and alcohol by volume.
It is seeking compliance for voluntary disclosure by the end of 2020.
The group is also encouraging brewers to show when a beer was brewed, to list ingredients, and also to point to a website or include a code that can be scanned with a smartphone for more information.
Members produce more than 80 percent of the volume of beer sold in the U.S., the institute said, and added that that Anheuser-Busch, MillerCoors and HeinekenUSA have already agreed to the new standards.
