Dear Thirsty Friends,

Everything is about to change…in a most mutinous way.

After 4 years, 24 issues and 1,936 pages of gloriously inspired fine beverage awesomeness, the vision and success of Mutineer cannot be contained in a single print publication. Building on the hard work of our tirelessly dedicated team and the enthusiastic support of our readers and the beverage industry, we are excited to be expanding soon, which will allow us to continue to grow and realize the full potential of the Mutineer vision in all of its glorious splendor.

Effective September 1, Mutineer Magazine’s Managing Editor, Brian Kropf, will take over the duties of Editor-in-Chief. I am supremely confident that Brian will not only uphold the values and standards that have come to define Mutineer, but take them to dizzying new heights. Also effective September 1st, Erin Jimcosky will become Publisher. Erin began at Mutineer Magazine as Food Editor and has since become a pillar of leadership in our rebel operation and a steadfast steward of the Mutineer vision.

There has never been a more exciting time in modern beverage culture, this much we know. It’s a full scale revolution of the highest order, and it’s still in its infancy. As the beverage industry landscape changes in step with the evolution of drink consumers, new doors will open and opporuntiies appear, and I personally can’t wait to see what happens next.

It has been a grand and glorious journey thus far, and we’ve only just scratched the surface of what’s possible in beverage culture. All of us at Mutineer are so thankful for all of the support we’ve received, and we are humbled to be a part of your fine beverage experience. We’re still just getting started, and we appreciate you coming along for the ride.


Alan Kropf

“…Mutineer was born from the loins of raw passion, blind optimism and reckless resolve. The Mutineer is based on the idea that the world of wine, beer, spirits, and all fine beverages has somehow been perverted within the void that exists between maker and drinker. This is a void that has overstayed its welcome, and it is a void that has now found itself in our crosshairs.”
– Alan Kropf, Letter from the Editor, Mutineer Magazine No. 1

    So, Alan, you’re not going anywhere, right?

    Chris, Alan won’t be going anywhere! He’s taking on a larger roll within Mutineer. :)
