    Utah lawmakers reached a compromise on Wednesday for the heavily debated beer bill.

    They plan to dump 3.2 beer and replace it with 4.0 beer.

    Originally, Senate Bill 132, sponsored by Sen. Jerry Stevenson, called for an increase in the alcohol limit from 3.2 percent to 4.8 percent by weight, and from 4 percent to 6 percent in volume - an amount in most standard production-line beers.

    Last week, the bill failed in the House Health and Human Services Committee.

    The House committee chose to form a Beer Availability Task Force to study and make recommendations on the distribution of beer in the state.

    The compromise will be offered on the House floor Wednesday afternoon for a vote.
