Beverage Kickstarter Spotlight: Keep Moberi Pedaling


Here at Mutineer HQ, we are all about cheering on beverage entrepreneurs and their efforts to add something new to the beverage industry. Kickstarter is a great resource for these people to bring their ideas to life. One project we really love right now is the Keep Moberi Pedaling project.

Moberi is a smoothie shop where the blenders are operated in a somewhat unique fashion, by pedal power. Owner Ryan Carpenter needs to take his bicycle powered business to the next level and he needs your help to do it. He has turned to Kickstarter to get there. Check out Ryan’s project and his awesome rewards to see if this is a project you can get behind.

Mutineer Magazine Issue 27 Preview


Issue 27

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.

Friday Cocktail: Twisted Brazilian


Twisted Brazilian Cocktail

It’s Friday and you know what that means, it is time to put away those TPS reports and whip up a cocktail to kickoff the weekend.

This week our cocktail the Twisted Brazilian comes from Honey Salt restaurant out of Las Vegas. The drink was created by Bartender Leanne Albertoni and General Manager Steve Jerome and is based on the traditional Caipirinha from Brazil. They decided to shake things up a bit with grapefruit added for a twist on an old classic. Give it a try tonight and start your weekend off right!

2 grapefruits wedges + more to garnish
2 lime wedges + more to garnish
1.5 bar spoons sugar
1.5 Leblon Cachaca

Muddle the ingredients together, then shake hard with ice and pour over ice with 1 lime wedge and grapefruit wedge mixed in. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Beverage Kickstarter Spotlight: Strip and Go Bare


As of August 4, Strip and Go Bare has yet to fulfill their obligations with their Kickstarter backers.

Here at Mutineer HQ, we like to encourage beverage entrepreneurs and their efforts to bring something new to the beverage industry. Kickstarter is a great resource for these people to bring their ideas to life. One project we are particularly stoked about is the Strip and Go Bare project.

Ben Keys and Emily Gu liked to make delicious homemade cocktails and were inspired to create Strip and Go Bare bottled cocktails with encouragement from friends. Their bottled cocktails are gluten-free, organic, and are made simply from vodka, water, and citrus juices. They need help upgrading their equipment in order to launch their brand this year. Check out their project and help bring Strip and Go Bare to the market.

Hands on with the Savino Wine Preservation System


Savino Infographic

A few months ago we told you about the Kickstarter project for the Savino wine preservation system. Last month I had the chance to sit down with founder Scott Tavenner and get a demo of his Savino and I was amazed at how simple and easy the idea was. It reminded me of methods used to keep certain foods–like sauerkraut–away from the air during fermentation.

The guys at Savino sent over this fun infographic to show you how to use their unique system. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Taste Factor: New Wine Start-up Aims to Learn Your Wine Preferences and Blow Your Mind


It’s exciting to see wine brought to life through new digital platforms, with lots of companies exploring new ways to connect wine with consumers and add depth to the experience. One could argue that the art of prediction is a distant cousin to the art of time travel, and as such, a new start-up wine sales company, Taste Factor, caught my attention.

Taste Factor aims to help consumers discover wines tailored to their individual tastes via a wine recommendation engine that uses sophisticated algorithms the company claims are of NASA-esque proportions. I’ll take their word for it, because the closest I’ve come to space travel is via an absinthe rocket ship, and the math involved was limited to mystical ratios of spirit to water to sugar to enthusiasm.

Taste Factor’s engine takes member ratings, aggregates them, and applies a patented process to determine which wines a member will love. Taste Factor then sends these wines to members every month and guarantees they have a great experience.

“A question we kept asking ourselves was how we can help people discover wine they will love and break the traditional mold of relying on other people’s subjective – and often wrong – suggestions,” said Zack Crafton, Taste Factor’s co-founder. “We realized that the key isn’t trying to mathematically deconstruct a wine but to find complex patterns in our member’s rating history. Applying proven mathematical principles works and we’re incredibly excited to introduce members to wines they’ll be passionate about.”

A Billboard That Produces Water?

Other Beverage

In Lima, Peru the University of Engineering and Technology of Peru, or UTEC, has created something amazing. They have turned a billboard into a water supply. Essentially it utilizes a system of reverse osmosis that leaches water out of the air and turns it into potable drinking water. Check out the video posted above to learn more.

Happy Earth Day.
