Playboy Releases America’s Best Bars 2012

Beverage News

Playboy's America's Best Dive Bars

I read Playboy for the articles. No, really!

The Editors over at Playboy have just released this year’s list for the best bars in America, which they’ve divided up into four sections; dive bars, seduction spots, classics, and mixology. Overall, a pretty good selection, many of which I’ve been to, including Yountville’s favorite (and only) divebar Pancha’s. In the Napa Valley and sick of Cabernet? Need a place to drink a can of the Silver Bullet and smoke…indoors…? Panacha’s is the place!

Congrats to all those nominated.

Happy Fourth of July

Miscellaneous

Fireworks

The Fourth of July is here!

First and foremost, we ask that you please don’t drink and drive this weekend, but please drink and have a good time.

Next, we all know great wine comes from Burgundy and incredible whisky comes from Scotland, but as we celebrate our independence, let’s celebrate and support our local beverage producers. Bourbon! Your local craft brewery, distillery or winery! It’s a great time to be part of the American beverage landscape with so many incredible producers so close to where many of us live.

On the national day of America, raise your glass and raise it high, preferably full of something American, as we say “Cheers!”

Cheers.

Team Mutineer

Pakistani Steam Roller Smashes 39,617 of Bottles of Liquor

BeerBeverage News

Pakistan

To celebrate a campaign fighting counterfeit and illegally trafficked liquor bottles, the Pakistan Coast Guard did the only logical thing: run over thousands of bottles with a steam roller.

According to The News International:
To observe International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, a huge quantity of drugs and tens of thousands of bottles of liquor were destroyed at the Hawkesbay beach by the Pakistan Coast Guards (PCG) on Tuesday…The aim is to educate the people about the risks of drug abuse, especially among the youngsters, who are the future of the country.

It should be said that as a human male, breaking glass is woven into my DNA, so to utilize glass breaking as government protocol at a scale necessitating steam rollers is, well, awesome. It’d be like arming police officers with fireworks or deciding small claims court decisions with video games…while impractical, it does win serious points for morale and overall excitement.

Mutineer Magazine Issue 24

Welcome to Mutineer #24. I can say with confidence that it is scientifically impossible for us at Mutineer to be any more pumped about this rip roaringly glorious issue of our rebel publication.

In this issue’s feature stories, we are excited and humbled to celebrate the legacy of FRITZ MAYTAG, who may very well be the most influential American craft beer and spirits producer in the last half century, as well as tell the story of KEVIN ZRALY, who’s had an equally profound effect on American wine culture as a writer, educator and wine director at New York’s legendary Windows on the World. Lastly, we explore the story of a legacy still being established as bartender DUGGAN MCDONNELL gives us a glimpse into his inspired Pisco project Campo de Encanto.

The July/August 2012 Issue of Mutineer Magazine brings you:

Mutineer Interview: Fritz Maytag

We know the story about how he was a major catalyst for the craft brewing revolution when he purchased and revived a failing Anchor Brewing. But what about Anchor Distilling? We sit down with Fritz Maytag for a rare interview about Anchor Distilling, his effects on the U.S. craft distilling scene and his legacy.

Where Your Heart Lives: A Pisco Story

Campo de Enanto Pisco’s Duggan McDonnell delivers the goods on the grand eau-de-vie of the Tropics.

Windows on the World: The Great American Wine (Hi)Story

Through the eyes of America’s most celebrated wine educator, Kevin Zraly, we witness the revolution that helped define our wine culture and landscape.

Oklahoma Supreme Court Upholds Wine Initiative Petition

Wine

X Winery at Wine Library TV

Having grown up in Washington, I was used to liquor being monopolized via the State. Unlike California, where I live now, there would be an aisle dedicated to wine and beer at the local grocery store, but no spirits. Some states, like Oklahoma, haven’t even made it that far and are fighting for the right to be able to purchase wine in grocery stores. It would make sense, wouldn’t it? Who wants to make a special trip to the liquor store to pick up marsala or other wine for cooking, or a bottle of sauvignon blanc to sip on the back porch? Quite a few people apparently, and a few judges too as the petition narrowly passed 5-4.

Who wouldn’t want the petition to pass? Liquor retailers, of course, who will be gaining competition as well as other organizations, both who claim wine being widely available will increase the opportunity for alcohol abuse and underage drinking in Oklahoma. Yes! The kids! Won’t somebody think of the kids? I remember the days of my youth, hanging out in the parking lot of a grocery store asking strangers to buy me a bottle of Nero d’Avola.

Facetiousness aside, I do hope this passes. Even if it does, it won’t be too widespread. “The proposal would create a new retail wine license to permit the sale of wine by grocery stores, superstores, supermarkets and warehouse clubs that have at least 25,000 square feet of floor space. Convenience stores would be excluded,” According to NewsOK. They continue, “Wine sales by grocery stores would be restricted to 15 Oklahoma counties with populations of more than 50,000 and would have to be approved in advance in countywide votes.”

Still, the group fighting for the petition, Oklahomans for Modern Laws, have a steep hill in front of them as they must collect 155,216 registered votes to get on the November 6 general election ballot.

What are your thoughts?
