The day after Thanksgiving is now a huge day for craft beer fans looking for rarities and limited brews. I admit to waiting in line on an early Black Friday morning or two so I could get my hands on a Bourbon Country varietal. Goose Island was a pioneer in both barrel aging and bringing whale hunting to Black Friday, but savvy craft breweries have followed the lead. Lakefront Brewery got the ball rolling in Milwaukee.
Black Husky (909 E. Locust St.) beats the Black Friday rush with its Ahead of the Pack Barrel-Aged Beer Release at 5 p.m. An extremely limited amount of bottles of Bourbon Barrel-Aged Headbutter Barleywine will be available and Black Husky is also tapping Jake Style Imperial Hefeweiss that is aged in pinot noir barrels. Get the chance to pair beers by 1840 Brewing with empanadas from La Masa. The event starts at 6 p.m. at 1840 Brewing Company (342 E. Ward St.).
Barley to Barrel is a 10-week class that guides prospective brewers through every step of the process of launching a brewery, right down to selling their brew to real restaurants and bars. The Barley to Barrel program benefits from a robust Milwaukee craft beer scene. And the Milwaukee beer scene gains from having something like Barley to Barrel in town. It’s a win-win.
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".
