Two German brewers associations are recommending that their members start printing the number of calories contained in their beers and shandies on the label

BERLIN -- Two German brewers associations are recommending that their members start printing the number of calories contained in their beers and shandies on the label.

The average calorie content of a pilsner-style beer is about 40 calories per 100 milliliters, or about 200 kcal in a standard half-liter bottle.
