LOS ANGELES — Your favorite ale or lager soon might be getting a little more health-conscious.

The Beer Institute has planned an initiative to add labels with nutrition facts on bottles and cans.

The labels will include the number of calories, carbs, freshness dating and alcohol by volume.

A scannable QR code on labels will let drinkers get more information, such as ingredients.

Members of the group have agreed to the new standards, including major brewers MillerCoors, Anheuser-Busch, HeinekenUSA, Constellation Brands, North American Breweries and Craft Brew Alliance.

Expect to see the labels roll out between now and 2020.
