Now that Uncrate is nearing its 10th anniversary, we decided it was finally time to start doing a print magazine. We know this sounds backwards in a world of apps and iPads, but we wanted something you can hold in your own two hands. Something that can live in your bag or on your coffee table. Something that lets you escape that little electronic distraction machine in your pocket. So we made Uncrate Quarterly. This seasonal magazine will arrive four times a year, and will show you our favorite gear, gadgets, vices, and cars for that particular time of year, as well as some amazing photographs from our travels and testings.
For our Winter 2014 edition, we visited Iceland, Colorado, Alaska, and a few other locations, and tested hundreds of cold weather products. You'll find beautiful photography of both the gear and the destinations, all shot by us. Everyone you see in the magazine is an Uncrate staff member — no lame models or stand-ins. You'll get exactly 212 pages of wintery Uncrate goodness. And because we did a book-style cover and used only the best paper — 100 lb Arbor Plus to be exact — this thing is a monster. You'll want to keep it forever — or at least until the next issue comes out this spring.
Curling up with a good read and a good drink is one of life's simple pleasures, which is why Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist is such a good idea. Far more than just a clever title, this 160-page tome is filled with 65 drink recipes, each based on a particular book — from Moby Dick to For Whom the Bell Tolls — and paired with commentary on the novel. In addition, you'll also find bar food recipes, drinking games, and illustrations that really tie the
room text together.
