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.

I Must Have This #2: The Upside Down Beer Bottle Glass Device


Hopeside Down

Now you’re probably thinking, “I don’t remember there being an ‘I Must Have This #1’, and that is because it never existed…UNTIL NOW. In a move I’m sure all will agree with, I’ve made the incredible alcohol firing gun the first installment of this series.

Today’s item (and actually available for purchase in the real world) is the “Hopside Down” glass. This glass has been making waves on blogs, and it is pretty cool, I’m just not sure why. I mean, if you want a bottle of beer, why are you pouring it out of the bottle in the first place? This paradox is supported by Hopside Down’s motto “viva la longneck”. I don’t care, I’m into this and I must have this.

Kells Irish Style Lager


Rogue Kells Irish Style Lager

The term lager doesn’t usually inspire much for beer drinkers, but when I saw that Rogue had produced Kells Irish Style Lager I simply had to try it. Rogue developed this recipe for Kells Irish Restaurant and Pub, but it is also available at your local beer store. I poured a few glasses and after my friend tried it, the first thing he said was, “This is the best beer other than specialty Belgian style sours that I have had.” I have to say he was right, full of flavor and without any foul after-taste that is usually associated with this style of beer, the Kells is a great session lager. For more on Rogue visit there website.

Red Bull: Giving Cola Wings

Other Beverage

Red Bull Cola

Red Bull has entered the fray that is soda, more specifically, cola. Don’t let the name cola confuse you, this is no Coke/Pepsi knock off, “Red Bull Cola isn’t just a cola; it’s premium, strong and natural.” Most people, including myself, overlook the word, ‘natural’. In my defense though, the word does seem to be overused, and in most cases it doesn’t even seem to be accurate. Mutineer’s Editor-in-Chief, Alan Kropf, displays a perfect example of a questionable product labeling of the word “natural”. Let’s not steer too far from the topic of Red Bull though, because in the case of Red Bull claiming to use “natural” products, well I can ensure you, they are not joking around. See the full post »

Osmosis Mint Water

Other Beverage

Out for an afternoon bike ride to Point Defiance in Western Washington I felt my bodies’ reluctance to continue after a grueling uphill climb. This seemed like the perfect time to stop and grab a bottle of water from a nearby gas station. As I perused the cooler section my eyes were drawn to a shiny silver bottle of Osmosis Mint Water. Like a raccoon, once in my hand I could not put the shiny object down and proceeded to check the ingredients for my two mortal enemies sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. The label called it mint water and according to the ingredients that is exactly what it was: purified water, mint. See the full post »

Suze Orman vs. Restaurants

Beverage News

Anything to do with “calling people out” is sure to get my attention, so when I got the Facebook group invite to join “Mom-n-Pop Restaurants Against Suze Orman”, it was game on.

I received the invite from Emily Stoller Smith of the unfathomably awesome Eyrie Vineyards, which we wrote about in Mutineer Magazine Issue 2. People often ask me what my favorite wine is, and Eyrie is definitely in the top three, if not my favorite of all time. Anyways, the invite was from a trusted source, so I felt compelled to enter the fray. See the full post »
