The very thought of Moonshine speaks to the pioneer spirit. And, South Dakota pioneers played their part in that American history. We couldn’t be making our Moonshine today without thinking of the Great Uncles to Jim Herber who found out the hard way back in the early 1930’s. The revenuers caught the 5 brothers down on Sears Creek in the Weta basin as they were trying to stay a step ahead, and destroy the evidence of their still operation.
