Independence Day... The 4th of July... Americans dig their celebrations, and along with it, the grownups in the crowd do enjoy a tasty beverage on occasion, myself included... from time to time. I've featured a few brews here on THE ROCK FATHER in the past, and while I've covered beer and wine, I don't think I've ever covered whiskey in the past, but that changes today with some news that landed here at Rock Father HQ about AMERICAN BORN MOONSHINE. See, as a kid - my knowledge of runnin' moonshine came courtesy of the Duke boys - yep, THE DUKES OF HAZZARD - who were known to toss some of Uncle Jesse's signature recipe in the trunk of their bright orange Dodge Charger, and proceed to run from the law a bit. So why AMERICAN BORN MOONSHINE now? Because the makers officially enter California today... the 4th of July... and they've got a massive event schedule spread across the State.
