MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) -

Lawmakers in Montgomery had the great beer debate Tuesday afternoon.

At issue is a bill to allow home brewing of beer and wines in the state.

Tuesday's discussion saw a distinct change from years past, with many lawmakers apparently ready to vote in favor of the idea.

Late Tuesday afternoon, the house passed it, 58 to 33.

If the bill goes into law, Alabama will become the 50th and final state to allow home brewing.

However, if you live in a dry county or dry city, home brewing would still be against the law.
