At the end of the month, Golden Road Brewing is opening a new sprawling campus in Anaheim that includes an “innovation brewery,” a full-service restaurant and an outsized beer garden with all the trimmings. First purchased in 2015, before Golden Road was acquired by Anheuser-Busch InBev, the space was to be the long-term home of Golden Road’s production facility. But after the acquisition, the course changed.
When it comes to buying craft beer, picking a few of the 22-ounce “bomber” bottles used to be the best way to try out new brews. But consumer demand is shifting away from the large-format bottles, and the six pack is an important tool for brewers looking to capture more of the casual beer drinker market. “Putting your everyday beers in bombers is no longer something the market will support,” says El Segundo Brewing co-owner Thomas Kelley.
Every year, the beer world travels to Denver for the brewers’ version of the Oscars, known as the Great American Beer Festival. Now in its third decade, the GABF awards are the most prestigious beer prize in the country. And this year, a half dozen L.A. area breweries won awards for beers that ranged from classic German styles to adventurous uses of fruit and vegetables. Nearly 8,000 brews were entered into the 98 different categories.

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".
