The owners of Enlightened Brewing, 2108 S. 1st St., were happy to post a sign that read "Hate Has No Home Here," a sentiment spelled out in a few different languages below the larger English version. The sign was a way for the brewery to tell customers "we want everyone to feel comfortable and safe, no matter their beliefs," said James Larson, the brewery's co-founder. It was also a way to hide an ugly electrical box.
Milwaukee Craft Brewery Week launches Friday with a Collaboration Release Party starting at 7 p.m. and happening at seven breweries throughout the city. Not to be confused with Milwaukee Beer Week — in which Beechwood Sales and Service ramps up beer events for a week in April — this week is sponsored by the Milwaukee Craft Brewery League. In a process similar to speed dating, brewers in the league met each other months ago to see which collaborations might work best.
It's the weekend. And just when you thought everything was unicorns and rainbows (well, there might be rainbows), the tough choices come. Just kidding. It's really just a case of double the fun? Gallery Night and Day heads outside so your choices double. You can check out the city's public art displays or the 40 galleries that will open their doors for the occasion on Friday and Saturday. Firkin Fest sets up in Cathedral Square Park with some unique and tasty beers on Saturday.
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".
