for I was fortunate to attend a reception at the Distilled Spirits Council offices the other nightfor Kevin R. Kosar , vice president of policy at R Street Institute, and his new book Moonshine: A Global History . Despite its close association with Appalachia, the concept of moonshine really is a worldwide phenomenon.
Portland Ore.’s House Spirits Distillery announced the national release of its Westward American Single Malt whiskey, which the spirits producer describes as “a grain-to-glass celebration of the American pioneer spirit, inspired by the best of the American craft beer and whiskey traditions.” Distilled in Portland, and perfected by years of maturation in the company’s rack house in Clackamas, it is the culmination of Master Distiller Christian Krogstad’s quest to produce a whiskey that...
It may seem like a bit of a gimmick when a bartender pours a shot or a cocktail from a tap, but bar owners who do offer distilled beverages on draft insist that there are operational benefits beyond mere theater. Spirits lines probably won’t ever outnumber those for beer, but even one or two behind the bar can enhance efficiency and boost promotions. A commonly used dispensing system among craft cocktail bars isn’t that much of a departure from a draft beer system, sans carbonation.
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".
