Stand With Beer
More than 95% of beer sold by participating companies voluntarily provides nutritional information
In 2016, beer industry leaders committed to the Brewers’ Voluntary Disclosure Initiative and providing nutritional information, freshness dating, ABV (alcohol by volume), and ingredients for their beer by the end of 2020.
Participating brewers and beer importers delivered on their commitment: over 95% of all beer sold by participating companies today complies with these disclosure standards.
Consumers aged 21 and older overwhelmingly support voluntary disclosures. Polling shows 75% of Americans believe alcohol beverages should have nutrition labels, and 72% say it encourages responsible consumption.
No other alcohol segment can match the depth and breadth of label transparency these brewers and beer importers now provide.
What information is provided?
Participating Beer Institute members voluntarily provide consumers more information about their products, specifically:
- Calorie, carbohydrate, protein, fat, and ABV (or ABW as required by state law) information on all labels in the form of a serving facts statement.
- Ingredients on either the label or secondary packaging via a list of ingredients, a reference to a website with the information, or a QR code.
- A freshness date or date of production on all labels or primary containers.
- Restaurants can utilize these labels to comply with federal menu labeling requirements.
The beer industry is proud to offer more information to consumers than any other alcohol category.
