The drink menu at Indiana's State fair could soon include alcohol. A bill passes in the state Senate and now heads to the House for approval.

The bill would lift a 60-year-old ban. Alcohol would be sold in designated 21 and up areas.

Those supporting it say folks should be able to enjoy a beer or a mixed drink at the fair. State Fair officials agree the current law is outdated and say having liquor would not make the fair any less family friendly.
