Mutineer Magazine Celebrates Inspired Voices of the Beverage Revolution: Laura Levesque Page

Miscellaneous

Mutineer Magazine announces the addition of a new recurring column called “Inspired Beverage Voices,” created to celebrate regional innovators in the world of fine beverage culture. Each issue will now explore a different area, highlighting individuals working with local libations in inspired, new ways. With the support of No.3 Gin, the inaugural feature on Napa Valley will appear in the November 2011 edition and will introduce the nation to the new and innovative voices of TouteSuite Social Club, with Susan Quinn and Didier Loustau, Christophe Smith of Harvest Live, and Laura Levesque Page of The Healthy Junkie.

“It’s been said that a culture is defined by its articulate voices, so we couldn’t be more excited to highlight these new and inspired voices in beverage culture, beginning with Napa Valley,” says Mutineer Editor in Chief and Publisher Alan Kropf.

Today we celebrate the third and last of our Inspired Beverage Voices.

Laura Levesque Page R.H.N., a.k.a. The Healthy Junkie, beat three cancer diagnoses in her early ‘20s by turning away from drastic surgical methods and embracing the natural healing power of a healthy diet and lifestyle. “For me, health is simple: eat more vegetables,” she says. Her recipe for good health includes lots of beverages inspired by leafy greens and fresh juices, which she shares on her website and via Twitter. She also uses her wellness-centered blog, workshops and personal life coaching to inspire others to make better lifestyle choices.

Inspired by all the “really cool stuff in Napa Valley that the consumer never gets a chance to see,” Smith’s creation uses an online streaming format that lets participants ask questions via moderated chat room or Twitter, and gives people all over the world a glimpse behind the scenes of a Napa Valley grape harvest. Archive footage is also available year-round on their website.

Mutineer Magazine Issue 19 Preview

Miscellaneous

Mutineer Magazine Issue 19

From the Issue 19 Letter from the Editor:
“My fellow Mutineers, this is technically the first issue of the fourth year of Mutineer Magazine. Yes folks, this proverbial battleship of fine beverage righteousness has relentlessly pressed on, blasting against the confused currents of a culture in the midst of an awkward adolescence that will likely only be truly appreciated with hindsight.

My fine beverage brethren, the time has come to put on your Che t-shirt and cue up the White Album, because we are in the midst of a people’s drink revolution of the highest order. It’s essentially a waking dream, except real.”

And he even continues further. How can one not get excited about that? Throughout Issue 19 of Mutineer Magazine, you will find that same intensity for today’s beverage culture.

The September/October 2011 Issue of Mutineer Magazine brings you:

Behind the Peep Hole: Ken Burns’ “Prohibition”

Flappers and fedoras are only part of the story of Prohibition. Ken Burns digs deeper in his new documentary.

Birreria

What happens when you take talented brewers from two continents and partner them with an Iron Chef? Amazing things… on a rooftop.

Gypsy Brewing

A band of brewers questioned the traditional brewery model and wrote their own rules. They’re called gypsy brewers, and they’re challenging the craft beer world.

Mutineer Interview: Steve Heimoff

Part wine journo, part blogger, Steve Heimoff is a rare species. Mutineer tracked down the elusive hybrid to ask him a few burning questions.

Mutineer’s Alan Kropf Recognized in Wine & Spirits Magazine’s 30 Under 30

Beverage NewsMiscellaneous

Wine & Spirits Magazine

Mutineer Magazine’s Editor in Chief & Publisher Alan Kropf is being recognized by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of world’s top 30 beverage professionals under the age of 30, alongside honorees including Jean-Frederic & Marc-Andre Hugel from Alsace and Raphael Bereche from Champagne.

Sasha Kadey of King Estate is quoted in the article, saying “It’s a post-digital publication designed with a digital look and feel that works for people who consume their information online. The combination of the post-digital design and the almost surreal art vibe of the photography has a lot to do with their connect with their audience.”

An excerpt from the article:
“With the help of Kropf’s brother, Brian, and friend Jeff Dorenbush, they bought an RV and drove up and down the West Coast doing demographic research for the future millennial-mentoring, all-encompassing beverage rag that went national in 2009.”

Check out the entire roster of sub-30 fine beverage individuals in the September issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine.



Mutineer Magazine Issue 18 Preview

Miscellaneous

MM18 Cover

With Tales of the Cocktail less than a month away, it’s only fitting that Issue 18 of Mutineer Magazine be filled to the brim with cocktail goodness and that’s exactly what we’ve done. Spirits, cocktails, brand ambassadors, mixologists – we have it all and then some. Cocktails not your thing? Don’t worry, we have you covered too.

The Secret Lives of Brand Ambassadors

As three of the best can attest, spirit and spirits go hand-in-hand at these intense-but-rewarding jobs.

Everybody has his or her favorite fine beverage, but only a handful of us are tasked to live and breathe the product 24/7. Such is life for a brand ambassador. No three brand ambassadors work harder than Juan Coronado, Craig Vaught and Charlotte Voisey, and contributor Matt Villano recently chatted with each of them to get the inside scoop. Interestingly, all three got their starts on the bottle side of the bar.

Spartacus Miximus: Behind the Scenes of a Global Cocktail Competition

After attending the American regional and national heats in Chicago and Miami of the Bacardi Global Legacy Cocktail Competition, Mutineer Editor in Chief Alan Kropf meets up for the global finals in Barcelona, Spain. Join Kropf as he takes you through the competition, the competitors and their world class cocktails.

Drinking and Drawing: The Artwork of Jill DeGroff

Jill DeGroff has spent more than a few hours inside every manner of saloon, speakeasy, bar and lounge while roaming until the wee hours of the morning. To most, the places would start to blend together, but DeGroff has found a muse in these dens of drink. The characters and stories have captivated her, and she has captured them in both word and portraiture. In the second book in her series, Lush Life: Portraits From The Bar, DeGroff features Bon Bivants, ne’er-do-wells and all manner of folks in between.

Teahouse Revolution!

It all began with a lack of choice. A lack of choice fueled by decades of oppression, a need for more and the desire to have a say in life’s most simplistic decisions. Decisions which were as seemingly basic as the quality of leaves that infuse your teapot. In this article, Mutineer Food Editor Erin Jimcosky gives you an in-depth look at the incredible story behind Dobra Tea.

Cooking With HelloCello

Mutineer Food Editor Erin Jimcosky has done it again, this time with HelloCello’s Limoncello di Sonoma! Limoncello icebox cakes, Limoncello ice cream sandwiches and more … all made with Limoncello. Perfect dishes you won’t want to miss and just in time for summer.
