Consumers often don’t know how much alcohol is in their drink because beer and wine makers have been upping the amount of alcohol in a can or bottle, a report from PHI’s Alcohol Research Group indicates. As a result, the alcohol content can vary without the consumer realizing it. And many beer and wine makers don’t specify the alcohol content on their labels because they’re not required to do so.

“The Blurring of Alcohol Categories” calls for improved labeling of alcohol so that people can track their intake and keep themselves from unknowingly drinking more than they intend.
