Moonshiners



This is legitimately the best show Discovery Channel has ever aired. Appalachia suddenly jumped into the list of places I want to visit. Bluegrass and hooch ... and overalls coming back in a BIG way. It's all a bit of drummed up drama - running around in the woods, hiding your distilling equipment from the police. Maybe the bigger (and more important) question is why moonshine operations are illegal. America needs to get over itself with alcohol. Really, it's almost a joke that so much effort is expended to catch a few moonshiners, and all the while, they have their own tv show. Come on guys, it's just a little booze. And as dangerous as hooch can be, watch the series, especially the bit about how they find the best water for brewing the mash - these are hillbilly artisans.
