Basically any consumable item you buy comes with a list of the ingredients and nutritional information on the package. The most notable exception might be beer, as well as wine and spirits. Sure, beer is frequently consumed out of a tap or in a bottle handed to you from a friend, but you won't even find nutritional details on the box the beer came in.
That is about to change. On January 11, Anheuser-Busch InBev announced Bud Light will be the first American beer with ingredients and nutritional information listed on the packaging. You won't find it on individual cans or bottles, but the new look will be seen on secondary packaging (the box the beer comes in). You will find the new look in stores starting at some point in February.
Though, it's worth noting that they aren't the first to include ingredients. You won't find the full serving facts label, but some breweries, like North Carolina's Highland Brewing, already lists ingredients on some labels.
"While ingredient labels are not required, consumers deserve to know more about their beer. We brew Bud Light with the finest ingredients and we’re happy to proudly display them on our packaging," said Andy Goeler, Bud Light's vice president of marketing, in a statement. "When people walk through a store, they are used to seeing ingredient labels on products in every aisle, except for the beer, wine, and spirits aisle. As the lead brand in the category, we believe increasing on-pack transparency will benefit the entire beer category and provide our consumers with the information they expect to see."
