There are many custom brews to enjoy this holiday season, just don’t try them all at onceThe holiday season can be a funny one for the beer world. Your average pale lager or even favourite IPA may not seem, well, festive enough to mark the occasion. There is a reason people brew up mulled cider or rum eggnog for holiday parties, but this year, consumers want something more. In recent years, craft brewers have become increasingly inventive with what they do with their releases around the holidays.
A new brewery opening on the south side means beers all around the cityEdmonton has a new brewery. While the Alberta craft beer industry has been exploding, Edmonton has lagged a bit, seeing only a couple of new entrants in the last year or so. However, we can rejoice in the recent opening of Town Square Brewing, our city’s newest brewery. Town Square is south—very south. So south they have a SW after their address (officially 2919 Ellwood Dr. SW).
New brewers emerge thanks to Alberta’s current beer policyAlberta has become a fascinating political experiment in recent years. I’m not talking about the $15 minimum wage or the carbon levy, I’m talking beer. It is an interesting case study in how policy can shape an industry. For ages, Alberta’s beer laws were outdated, archaic and served to be a significant barrier to the growth of craft beer in our province.
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".
