Kicking off with an opening gala on February 9 at Pier 35, an event known for creating special cross-brewery collaborations and rare beer pourings, this extended celebration of the Bay Area’s beer community includes happenings at breweries, bars and restaurants all around. Some highlights: A cellar release day with Drake’s Brewing Co., a dim sum beer brunch with Fort Point Beer Co., the Downtown San Jose Beer Walk and the Double IPA Festival at The Bistro.
The name of this festival alone tells you what to expect at its commercial tasting, but that’s just one part of a weekend of events. The Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center will also play host to beer dinners, sensory workshops, seminars and a homebrew competition. Should you somehow find time to pull yourself away from a full weekend of beer events, fresh powder awaits just outside. How better to warm up in January than with chili and beer?
On Saturdays at Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza, one can find fresh produce, breads, cheeses, honey, and, in one case, a vendor marked by an all-caps sign for “BEER” hanging above its stand amid the dense crowd of the weekly farmers market by Prospect Park. “New York City is kind of overwhelming. There’s a lot of stuff and a lot of different things available,” says Jake Cirell, who presides over said stall as the owner of From the Ground Brewery.
Dear all interested in urban studies: @ben_austen might have written the book of the year. Luxuriously informative for its concision (relative to the subject matter), and a lovely read for spring break https://t.co/BQedlZa1XJ
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
