Brew install php53, no formula for bison27

Getting the following problem when trying to install PHP 5.3 (or 5.x)?

$ brew install php53
Error: No available formula for bison27
Searching taps...

Very simple solution, as recently committed on GitHub but maybe not available on your machine yet.

$ brew tap homebrew/versions

Now run "brew install php53" again, and all should be working.
