Comic-Con gets a lot of attention as the biggest week in San Diego, but locals know that San Diego Beer Week is the best time to be a San Diegan. With more than 150 breweries operating in San Diego County, there’s no shortage of quality suds to sustain events all over the county, and it has even become a destination for beer tourism. While you can check out the entire list of events here, I did a little bit of work to pick some of the most interesting at varying price points.
One of the best things about the popularity of the American craft beer movement is the opportunity it provides to raise money and awareness for worthy causes. After successfully overcoming a breast cancer diagnosis in 2010, Green Flash Brewing Company Co-Founder Lisa Hinkley launched the company’s Treasure Chest initiative. Through the annual release of a special beer and a series of nationwide events, the program has raised over $300,000 for regional cancer-related charities.
Stone Brewing Company knows how to do a lot of things well. Not only has the Escondido standard-bearer masterfully harnessed hops to produce a portfolio of outstanding beers, it also has the reputation for throwing a heck of a party. Saturday’s 21st Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival was no exception, as more than 50 breweries invaded the campus of California State University San Marcos.
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".
