On April 17, Pierce College, near Tacoma, Wash., will name  Alan Kropf of Napa as one of its three distinguished alumni for 2013.

Kropf is president and founder of Mutineer Magazine, which explores fine beverages from wine to coffee to spirits.

The 75,000-readership quarterly favors a humorous, irreverent edge that makes fine beverages approachable to adults in their 20s and 30s, the demographic collectively called millenials, said a news release.

Kropf, 29, holds certifications as a sommelier, beer server and bartender. He worked as a sommelier overseeing the wine program at the  Beverly Hills Hotel. He helped Chef Gordon Ramsay open a restaurant in the London West Hollywood hotel in 2008. The same year, Kropf launched Mutineer Magazine, which achieved national distribution in less than a year.

Forbes magazine, Zagat’s and Wine & Spirits Magazine are among the publications that have named Kropf to their lists of up-and-coming trailblazers under the age of 30 in the wine, beverage or culinary industries.
