It’s hard not to imagine a backwoods grandpa with a clay jug of something he refers to as “white lightning” when you hear the word “moonshine,” but a new generation of at-home distillers is changing that. Kings County Distillery founders Colin Spoelman and David Haskell explore this trend in their new book, The Kings County Distillery Guide to Urban Moonshining: How to Make and Drink Whiskey. Get your copy signed and chat with the brown-liquor lovers, then enjoy the eats that Smorgasburg, Brooklyn’s weekly food market, has to offer. The event is part of Greenlight Bookstore’s new series that brings chef-authors to the Smorgasburg for signings and free samples every Saturday through November 23.
