It’s been three quarters of a decade of waiting and wondering, but pineapple beers are finally en vogue. In 2012, I sat with my friend Conor Giard drinking a beer and wondering why no breweries were making pineapple-infused brews. We speculated that perhaps there was a chemistry issue at play: pineapples contain bromelain, an enzyme that breaks down proteins. So we checked with a couple local brewers who were also flummoxed by the dearth of pineapple beers on the market.
Thanksgiving dinner is probably the largest meal that many of us will eat all year, and it can be one of the most complex in terms of flavors and dishes served. Hours upon hours are dedicated to the preparation of a perfect meal, but it seems that when it comes to picking out the perfect beverages for the dinner table, sometimes the energy runs out. Most sources will direct you to the wine section of the grocery store. While wine is fine for some, not everyone can dig it.
As the leaves put on their final blaze, burning red and orange, my thoughts start to drift toward pumpkins. But not pumpkin pie, nor spiced lattes. I’m thinking of those Reese’s Peanut Butter pumpkins -- and which beer would pair best with them. Last year, I wrote a column about pairing beers with chocolates from Lake Champlain Chocolates and Blue Bandana Chocolate Maker. The pairings ended up being complex and nuanced.
@SenJohnKennedy Maybe protect humans in non-combat situations like schools or on sidewalks first? The dog death on @united was tragic and should be prevented (seriously) but LET’S FUCKING PROTECT THE YOUTH IN SCHOOLS ALSO! Thanx. #WalkOut
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".
