Just because you can buy some moonshine legally doesn’t mean the renegades in the woods who can pocket more than $100,000 tax-free brewing an old family recipe plan to stop anytime soon. The new Discovery show Moonshiners, premiering Dec. 6, introduces us to some of the folks in Appalachia keeping the tradition alive (including legend Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton, shown clogging in the exclusive promo below), as well as the local lawmen trying to keep them honest (“I like to tell people at nighttime I am the boogeyman, because we gonna get ya”). It looks like a quintessentially American game of cat-and-mouse, with plenty of paranoia, firepower, and, we suspect, shine-fueled soundbites.
