Acquaint yourself with Rome’s growing thirst for birra artigianale, then read on for where to soak it in. What follows is not a list of all the best places to drink beer in Rome; instead, these are the places where you can have a stellar beer and food experience. Bir & Fud is a Ma Che offshoot but has a brighter, more futuristic design; the long tunnellike barroom with its seemingly endless row of 36 taps looks like it was inspired by Owen and Beru’s farm on Tatooine.
Among the annual events beer geeks get their beard hairs in a twist over, The Festival, put on by beer importer Shelton Brothers, is right near the top. Few other fests offer the chance to meet European brewing legends like Cantillon’s Jean Van Roy and Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen’s Armand De Belder. And hey: The beer ain’t bad, either. This year’s festival, held in Atlanta, Georgia, boasted more than 100 of the world’s most renowned breweries pouring their most buzzed-about beers.
Allagash has one of the most-followed Instagram accounts in all of beer, and for good reason: The photography is stunning. Plus, the page is regularly updated with useful beer release info and peeks inside the process at one of the coolest breweries in the country.
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".
