Nick Marking is a quick study. The owner of The Brass Tap (7808 W. Layton Ave.) wasn’t a seasoned tavern owner when he opened the beer bar in January 2015, but it’s hard to argue with what he’s done with his business in three years. The Brass Tap offers an oasis for beer lovers in the south suburbs, and those around the city are taking note of his ability to put limited beers on his 80 tap lines.
Atlas BBQ (1304 12th Ave., Grafton) hosts a beer dinner with The Fermentorium. For $50 you get four Fermentorium brews and dinner that includes a New York strip steak as the main course. Call 262-618-2181 to reserve a spot. Epic Brewing comes to Ray’s Growler Gallery (8930 W. North Ave.) and starts pouring brews at 5 p.m. The Milwaukee Beer Society pays a visit to Company Brewing (735 E. Center St.) at 6 p.m. For just $10 you can sample some of what the Riverwest staple has to offer.
Raised Grain Brewing is all too familiar with the conundrum caused by brewing great beers that people want to drink. “By midsummer we knew we needed to be in a bigger space because, between what we were selling in the taproom and 120 accounts, it was a balancing act to get everybody beer when they wanted it,” said owner and marketing manager Nick Reistad. “We have really good relationships with the retail accounts that we have.

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".
