If India pale ales were created to take advantage of the preservative properties of hops for long sea shipments from Britain to India, why do craft brewers recommend consuming hop-forward beers sooner rather than later? A fine paradox you’ve raised. Here’s a way to look at it. Today’s crafty IPA brewers add copious hops for hops’ sake. They want to feature the bitter seed cone’s fresh pine, floral and citrus notes front and centre.
If America’s signature grape is zinfandel, what is Canada’s? It’s impossible to come up with a precise equivalent because Canada has no strong parallel to zinfandel. The answer in this country is bound to be more subjective and questionable. You’re correct in citing zinfandel in the case of the United States. It’s often called “America’s heritage grape” because it’s been grown south of the border for almost 200 years and was a popular source of vino during the California Gold Rush.
A discerning drinker (“wine nerd,” if you prefer) might be inclined to detect a soupçon of wild herbs in the excellent new 2015 syrah from British Columbia’s Laughing Stock Vineyards. It’s an intriguing essence and fitting complement to the lush fruit of the full-bodied, velvety red. Winemaker David Enns, who owns the Naramata-based estate with wife Cynthia, believes nearby Anarchist Mountain may have something to do with it.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
