Mutineer Magazine Issue 28 Preview

Miscellaneous

Issue 28 - Summer 2013

Whether it’s where we’ve been or where we’re going, this mutinous journey keeps finding new ways to open our eyes to how truly special the beverage scene and beverage culture is.

Where we have been: In June, we were honored to produce and host the annual Wine Blog Awards at the Wine Bloggers Conference in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. We also found ourselves at Firestone Walker’s Invitational Beer Festival in June, which in its second year is quickly becoming one of the raddest beer festivals in existence. Later, we attended the annual Auction Napa Valley, which managed to raise a record shattering $16 million for local charities.

And the future: Not long after printing this issue, we will be in full force at the annual cocktail pilgrimage in New Orleans known as Tales of the Cocktail (July 17–21). Are you serious about spirits and cocktails? Perfect, we’ll see you there. In August (21–25), we are proud to be the presenting media sponsor of Sacramento’s Midtown Cocktail Week, a city that is often overshadowed by San Francisco, but believe us when we say, “Sacramento can hang with the best of them”. In September, yours truly will attend Camp Runamok in Kentucky with some of the country’s best bartenders, an annual experience that is one part Camp Anawanna, one part education, and two parts bourbon — essentially summer camp for bartenders. While it may be too late to sign up for this year, bartenders, keep your eyes peeled for this event next year.

Lastly, on October 16, Mutineer Magazine and Anchor Distilling Company will host some of the nation’s top bartenders at the 2013 Luxardo Cocktail Cup at Anchor’s San Francisco headquarters, all vying for the title of “Luxardo Cocktail Cup Champion”.
After that? Sky’s the limit.

The Fall 2013 Issue of Mutineer Magazine brings you:

THE USBG: PULSE OF THE AMERICAN BARTENDER

What started as a small group of California bartenders in 1948 has exploded into
41 chapters around the United States with a goal to empower bartenders through education, collaboration, and connecting with the communities around them. This is the story of the United States Bartenders’ Guild.

HEY BARTENDER: A CRAFT COCKTAIL DOCUMENTARY

Mutineer takes an in-depth, behind the scenes look into cocktail documentary Hey Bartender, while taking the opportunity to chat with its director and celebrated cast.

THE MUTINEER INTERVIEW: DAVID WONDRICH

David Wondrich is one of the most well known cocktail writers and historians in the world. Mutineer was fortunate enough to catch up with him for an interview where we talked about everything booze from Cobblers to Woo Woos.

The Fall issue also includes:

What People Drink: Tom Nichol
What People Drink: Helmut Adam
What People Drink: Erick Castro
Beer Styles: Pilsners
Classic Cocktails: Ramos Gin Fizz
DIY: Ginger Beer
+++ The Quest To Recreate Abbott’s Bitters, Colby Cheese, Sake Renegade: What is Authentic
Shōchū?, Wine Steals: Zinfandel, and much, much, more…

Happy Fourth of July

Miscellaneous

Andy Griffith

From everyone here at Mutineer, we hope you have a safe and fun filled Fourth of July with good friends and no shortage of beverages to drink. However, take a cue from Sheriff Andy and be careful out there, especially on the roads tonight. There will be a lot of cops out this evening and a DUI, or worse, isn’t worth it.

Grab some local craft beer, wine, or spirits and let’s celebrate America. And we can hold one up for Sheriff Andy as well, who died a year ago yesterday and what could be more American than Mayberry?

AMERICA.

Cheers,

Team Mutineer

Welcome to BottleRock

Miscellaneous

BottleRock

In the 1960s, Napa Valley was an underdog recovering from the catastrophic damage caused by prohibition. The region also struggled to earn the respect of being a world class wine region, which at the time was not a foregone conclusion. By the 1990s, that respect had been earned and then some, with Napa Valley quickly becoming a symbol of financial wealth and indulgent excess, a playground for the prosperous to celebrate their success. James Conaway summed it up in his book, “the far side of eden,” saying:

…something was wrong. People disagreed over when “it” had happened, and why, but not about the effect: a real, and growing, sense of loss. They felt it while sitting in a long line of cars on Highway 29, looking up at once pristine slopes dense with conifer and chaparral, studded now with “steroid houses,” “muscle houses,” “McMansions,” all contemptuous names for places built not to live in but as monuments to finance, visited by absentee owners.
