Drinks Reform With Moonshine

Kevin Kosar, senior fellow of the R Street Institute joins the show to discuss his new book “Moonshine: A Global History” and Drinksreform.org.

Whether it is beer, spirits, wine……or perhaps fermented Mares Milk alcohol has always been a part of a culture even when regimes try to restrict its consumption. Kevin’s book “Moonshine” discusses the history of DIY distilling as a history of criminality and the human ingenuity that has prevailed out of officials’ sights: from cleverly designed stills to the secret smuggling operations that got the goods to market.

Not to mention we dive into Drinksreform.org and uncover the movements each state is undertaking to reform their antiquated and outdated liquor laws. Whether its abv limits, forced distribution, licensing issues, etc there is bound to be a battle brewing in your state!

Drinksreform.org is the perfect site to stay up to date and figure out where your state stands and what still can be done!
