Moonshiners – Tonight at 10 on Discovery

Y’all know that the days of bootleggers, backwoods stills and “white lightning” aren’t over, but did you expect them to end up in prime time?

Tonight at 10:00 PM, Discovery Channel premieres its new series Moonshiners. Here’s how they’re billing it:

“Moonshiners tells the story of those who brew their shine – often in the woods near their homes using camouflaged equipment – and the local authorities who try to keep them honest.  Viewers will witness practices rarely, if ever, seen on television including the sacred rite of passage for a moonshiner – firing up the still for the first time.  They will also meet legends, including notorious moonshiner Marvin ‘Popcorn’ Sutton.”

If it’s got Popcorn, we gotta’ watch, right?

    I have a cousin in WV who’s “still” at it. That stuff’s so good, I don’t dare drink it anymore.
