Jennifer Aniston Releases “Sex Tape” to Sell Smart Water

Other Beverage

Jennifer Aniston wants you to drink lots of Smart Water, and she’s willing to exploit every web video cliché in order to accomplish her mission. To establish a sense of familiarity, she introduces herself as “Jen Aniston”, saying “Hi. I’m Jen Aniston, and I’m here to talk to you about Smart Water.”

ZOMG!!! She’s gonna talk about WATER! Let’s do this!

She continues, “But in this day and age apparently I can’t just do that. Can I?”

Yes! Yes you can! Do it! Do it! DO IT!!!!!!

“I can’t just tell you that Smart Water is the smartest, best tasting water that’s out there. I have to make a video, apparently, that turns into a virus.”

Yup, no geeky water throw-down. Just a chuckle friendly video about viral-cliches on the net. Enjoy.

Atlanta Residents Getting Charged Thousands For Their Monthly Water Bills

Other Beverage

Water CNN has released a report following up on four months of research into complaints from Atlanta residents about high water bills.

According to CNN:
Residents throughout Atlanta are outraged by hundreds, even thousands of dollars in monthly spikes in their water bills, and have questioned the legitimacy of the charges for years. Now, they’re demanding answers.
“I thought we were sinking in a hole of water,” said Debbi Scarborough. “It scared me to death. I thought we had a major leak when I got the bill.”
Over two months last summer, her family’s monthly water bill, shot up to $1,805 In July and then $1,084 in August, leaving a balance due of more than $3,000. She said in the past her bill has averaged $200 to $250.

Wait, they’ve been questioning the legitimacy of these charges for years? Awkward. It gets better, with CNN saying, “The city installed a device on [Debbi Scarborough’s] meter to track daily usage.” So a meter to meter the meter. Isn’t a meter fundamentally a device to track daily usage? That, ladies and gentlemen, appears to be the problem. A new, futuristic metering system was installed five years back with hopes of automating the metering process. Fast forward to fail city and a lot of pissed off Atlanta residents.



Coca-Cola to Release Daft Punk Edition Bottles

Other Beverage

Daft Punk Limited Edition Coca-Cola

Daft Punk and Coca-Cola have joined forces. Not to make a collaboration soft drink or to stir up some sick caffeine fueled beats, but for a limited edition packaging that comes in two different colors, gold and silver to mimic the helmets of the duo. The limited edition run, according to Gizmodo, will be distributed to the clubs that you can’t get into beginning this March as well as being distributed through colette in Paris.

For more information, visit DAFTCOKE.com, which should be live soon.

Become a Clean Water Crusader

Miscellaneous

Clean Water Crusaders

Mutineer Magazine’s Mutinous Water Relief Expedition to Kathmandu, Nepal in support of A Child’s Right and global water relief is approaching fast and Mutineer couldn’t be any more excited. What will Mutineer Magazine be doing? Mutineer will be leading a fine beverage expedition and purchasing and installing 5 water filtration systems, enough to provide clean water to 25,000 at-risk children for 10 years. Pretty epic.

The first two stages of our plan have been implemented by way of the Mutineer Magazine Blue Carpet Fundraiser Dinner for Water Relief held at Jordan Winery in Healdsburg, CA and with the Mutineer Magazine Holiday Comedy Festival held at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards in Sonoma, CA this last December. This brings us to something we’re super excited about, Clean Water Crusaders.

Are you a beverage producer looking for some exposure? Are you looking to further your philanthropic efforts? What if you could get your product featured in Mutineer Magazine and all while making a tax deductible charitable contribution directly to 501(c)(3) A Child’s Right? This is your chance. Beverage producers who raise or donate $500 will have their product professionally photographed and featured in Mutineer Magazine as seen in the image above. For the three producers who raise or donate the most, their product will be featured on the cover of the nationally distributed Mutineer Magazine for the entire nation to see.

Here’s how it works:

  • Your company raises at least $500 by August 27, 2011 to benefit water relief in Nepal, with all funds paid directly to 501(c)(3) non-profit organization A Child’s Right.
  • Your fine beverage company sends Mutineer Magazine your logo or a bottle of your beverage to be photographed.
  • A photograph of your company’s product or logo will be featured in the November/December water relief-themed issue of Mutineer Magazine with an interesting water-themed fact that will also be tweeted by @MutineerMag on behalf of your company.

And again, the top three fundraisers will be featured on the cover of the September/October issue of Mutineer Magazine.

For more information, visit our Clean Water Crusaders page or email Jeff Dorenbush.

Deschutes Brewery Events at Craft Brewers Conference 2011

Beer

Deschute Brewery CBC2011

The 2011 Craft Brewers Conference put on by the Brewers Association is less than a month away and breweries, bottle shops, and beer bars/restaurants are getting their events for the conference finalized as the American craft brewing community prepares to descend upon San Francisco. We at Mutineer are happy to announce the events that our friends at Deschutes Brewery will be holding and judging by the events we attended of theirs during the Great American Beer Festival, these will be off the charts.

WHAT: Collaboration Beer Dinner and Pairing at The Monk’s Kettle
Deschutes Brewery Chef Matt Neltner and Monk’s Kettle Chef Adam Dulye collaborate to deliver a menu made for beer. The special menu, from which anyone visiting the restaurant can order, takes the expertise of these two chefs to create food and beer pairings that will kick of the week just right. On tap will be a large variety of Deschutes beers including: The Abyss 2010, The Abyss 2009, Black Butte XXI, Hop Henge Experimental IPA, Red Chair NWPA, Mirror Mirror, Jubel 2010, Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Green Lakes Organic Ale. Visitors will also have a chance to discuss the beers and brewing processes with Deschutes Brewery brewer Robin Johnson.
                               
WHEN: Tuesday, March 22, 6-9pm

WHERE: The Monk’s Kettle
3141 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
415.865.9523

WHAT: Black Butte XXII California Debut at The Republic
Join us for a very rare appearance of last year’s coveted Black Butte XXII, which never released to the public. What we can tell you is that this imperial bourbon-aged version of our popular Black Butte Porter, brewed in 2010 with chilies, dark chocolate and orange peel, is well worth a taste during its California debut. You may be familiar with Black Butte XX and XXI which were released to celebrate the Brewery’s past anniversaries, but because XXII was not available outside of our brew pubs, most have not had the pleasure of tasting this spectacular beer.
                               
WHEN: Wednesday, March 23, 8pm-close

WHERE: The Republic
3213 Scott Street
San Francisco, CA 94123-2605

WHAT: Specialty Beer Tasting at the Toronado 8pm-close
Join no less than FOUR Deschutes brewers for some beer and sausage….a pairing that could only be made in, well, San Francisco. Deschutes Brewery, the Toronado and Rosamunde Sausage Grill are teaming up for an evening of pairing pleasure. Rosamunde will be grilling up some of their best to wash down with a bit of any of the following beers: The Abyss, The Dissident, Mirror Mirror, Nitro The Abyss, Hop Henge Experimental IPA, Red Chair NWPA, Green Lakes Organic Ale and Mirror Pond Pale Ale.

WHEN: Thursday March 24, 8pm-close

WHERE: The Toronado
547 Haight Street
San Francisco, CA 94117

WHAT: Specialty Beer Tasting at City Beer Store
There’s nothing quite like a small space that’s completely packed with beer of all kinds, from all over the world. What better atmosphere to enjoy some fine Deschutes brews and conversation with a Deschutes brewer? We’ll be serving up some small appetizers to bring out the flavors of the beer as we host a casual beer tasting evening for the Friday night crowd in the city by the Bay. We will be bringing down some favorites and specials such as The Abyss, Jubel 2010, Mirror Mirror, Hop Henge Experimental IPA and Red Chair NWPA. Meet our brewmaster, Larry Sidor, along with three other Deschutes brewers as they discuss this wide variety of beers.
         
WHEN: Friday March 25, 6pm–close

WHERE: City Beer Store
1168 Folsom St # 101
San Francisco, CA See the full post »
