Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Before the home-brewing renaissance, there was moonshine, otherwise known as illicitly (or downright illegally) distilled corn whiskey, the granddaddy of do-it-yourself drunkenness.

These days, you can still find moonshiners if you know where to look. Which is what author Max Watman did for his book Chasing the White Dog: An Amateur Outlaw's Adventures in Moonshine.

Watman will discuss and sign the tome at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover, 2526 East Colfax Avenue. Admission is free; call 303-322-7727 or visit www.tatteredcover.com.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
