NEVADA (KTNV) — Beer drinkers are about to know a little more about what is going into their favorite brew.

Starting next month, packages of Bud Light will have prominent nutritional labels showing the beer’s calories and ingredients as well as the amount of fat, carbohydrates, and protein in a serving.

The labels aren’t legally required, but major beer makers agreed in 2016 to voluntarily disclose nutrition facts on their products by 2020.

Corona, Guinness, Heineken, and Coors also have a few nutritional facts on its packaging.

Researches say the change can help the public be more aware of what they are drinking - especially on the calorie count.
