wilkesboro has always been known for it's moonshining. the old ruuners were the stewards of nascar. the heritage lives own. at least it isn't known for it's pot anymore, as it was in the 70's.lol.

I would love to get my hands on a few gallons. The cops should just take about half for themselves, and give the rest back to the guy. He's not hurting anyone, and its probably how he makes his living.

I don"t think they should arrest this man, People have been doing this for a long time and that"s they the only way they can mske money off of it.If they want to arest people who make moonshine they should get outlaw alchol altogether

Alicia, I totally agree! Government, local, state, and federal should quit picking on the little man. I know many who make their own wine and even sell it or share it with friends. The "law" knows about this and do nothing; I say there is no difference in the moonshiner and the winemaker. They'll get their taxes when and if those who abuse the alcohol get stopped for DUI. The state only wants you to buy alcohol from an ABC store or retail establishment where they can tax and benefit. They stick their nose into sale of tobacco in the same way. Oh, but it will get worse - stay tuned.......wait til they start arresting and taxing you on the food you grow, sell or share from your garden.

it's all a matter of the federal tax stamp. also' it's a public health issue, because way back when lead solder was used which caused serious health issues such as blindness.
