How to Trick Your Partner Into a "Romantic" Beer Getaway
Look, the two of us are beer nerds. We’re not ashamed of it; we’re not gonna try to hide it. But we’re also self-aware enough to realize that we can sometimes be -- how do we put this? -- insufferable dicks. You’re nodding your head right now. Clearly, you have some beer-loving friends like us.
Whether in the form of a pint of Guinness at your local bar, or an experimental craft brew at a faraway taproom, you’ve more than likely had a run in with nitro beer. And as the industry continues to expand, this creamy, silky form of beer only continues to grow with it, charming brewers, bartenders, and drinkers alike. But what exactly is the stuff, anyway? Short for “nitrogenated,” nitro beer earns its fizz from -- and is propelled to your glass by -- nitrogen rather than carbon dioxide.
San Diego, California, recently announced it now has an official beer. Light, refreshing, and citrusy, “72 and Hoppy” is produced by the local brewers at Bay City Brewing, who had the genius idea to team up with the San Diego Tourism Authority to create a beer that perfectly reps the city. So genius, in fact, that it got us here at The Beer Necessities thinking: doesn’t every large metropolitan area deserve a beer that communicates to visitors what the city is all about? We think so.
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".
