Mutineer Magazine Issue #5 Preview


Mutineer Magazine Issue #5 Preview

You may have noticed a drop in blog posts last week on the Mutineer Blog. This is because we were feverishly working around the clock to finish the April/May issue of Mutineer Magazine, which will be the first issue of MM nationally distributed at bookstores and newsstands across America.

We’ve taken the magazine to a whole new level, with top-notch stories and an improved layout; the Mutineer Magazine vision is really starting to come together. If you are already a subscriber, you should receive your copy in the next week or two, and if you aren’t a Mutineer Magazine subscriber, then you should head over to our subscription page and join the mutiny!

Here is a preview of the features in the upcoming issue:

Wine Feature: Drugstore Winemaker

Chess tells his own story of leaving behind a dark life of drug dealing to pursue a career as a wine horticulturist. With illustrations by Seattle artist Hunter Lea, this piece will be unlike anything you’ve ever read in a wine magazine.

Beer Feature: Pairing Food With Beer

JJ Bagley talks to beer experts Charlie Papazian (Brewers Association), Garrett Oliver (Brooklyn Brewery) and Jamie Emmerson (Full Sail Brewing) about the art of pairing beer with food.
