Oliver’s Fine Cider & Perry makes a selection of Herefordshire and Three Counties ciders and perries fermented by wild yeasts in small batches using freshly pressed fruit with minimal intervention. Its founder, Tom Oliver, believes in “taking what the fruit gives” and, as such, relies more heavily on handpicked fruit that is unsprayed and, instead, chooses to use the “earth’s natural resources” compared to so many of the ciders available elsewhere in the UK.
The Wild Beer Co has been creating delicious, inventive and thought-provoking beers since it was founded in late November 2012. With both a love of discovery combined with the opportunity to brew beers that tasted wildly different, The Wild Beer Co began.
Making a great beer list is a bit like making a music compilation. And, as anyone who has lovingly created a mix tape knows, there is an art to the selection, grouping and delivery. These days, the digitisation of music has changed the way we organise songs. It has made things easy for people to pull something together. You just tap and select the tunes you want to add. This, we understand, is a good thing – for accessibility.
All of the women commenting in this piece are brilliantly informed and good at what they do. Give it a read. It’s all (sadly) very true, but the industry is changing. And THAT’S what’s GREAT. >>The 'horrific' sexism blighting the beer world - BBC News http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-41892346 <<
This is an interesting read. Especially the bit cited by Ed Bedington in light of me being the only brewing & beer writing journalist on his former team who he made ‘spirits & wine champion’ instead of beer & cider writer - which was allocated to my (non-brewing) male colleague. https://twitter.com/totalcurtis/status/952484813201690624
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".
