Nutrition Labels on Booze: Cool or Not?

New reports are saying that the Treasury Department is considering a new rule that would require companies to put alcoholic content, serving sizes and nutritional information on all alcoholic drink packaging (from beer cans to wine bottles).

As of now, labels on all liquor and on wine with more than 14 percent alcohol by volume must disclose at least the alcohol content, but this is not required for beer (except in some states). However, if a brewer wants its beer to be labeled as a "light" beer, the label must show its caloric content and the percent of alcohol per volume.

What do you think -- Are you ready to see how bad (or good) for you booze is?
