Mutineers At Large,
You may not have heard from us in a while, but I assure you we haven’t forgotten about you. Mutineer has recently made the transition from bimonthly to quarterly distribution. To our subscribers, don’t fret: you’ll still get the same amount of issues that you signed up for. With this change in our production schedule, Mutineer has entered a new era with our rebel publication.
We’re excited to introduce a new layout design with this issue, which is the vision of our talented Creative Director Julie Hadjinian. The redesign started a few months ago with a complete overhaul of MutineerMagazine.com, which is more awesome than ever before.
We have an action-packed couple of months ahead of us as we sponsor some epic beverage events, starting with the craziness that will be BottleRock Napa Valley in May. We’ll kick off June with the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival in Paso Robles on June 1, and we’ll be back at the Wine Bloggers Conference the following week, this time in Canada, which means maple bars for everyone. July will bring Tales of the Cocktail, and we’re looking forward to returning for another glorious year.
While I officially took over as Editor-in-Chief in September, this is the first issue where I, with the help of my steadfast staff, have really been able to bring my vision to life within these pages of Mutineer, and it is a truly amazing feeling.
Whether this is the first issue of Mutineer you’ve picked up, or you’ve been following our merry band of Mutineers since the beginning, we sincerely appreciate the support. Thanks for riding shotgun on this adventure.
