ASHEVILLE - Catawba Brewing Co., the Morganton-based brewery with two Asheville taprooms, announced this week it would acquire the Charleston-based Palmetto Brewing Co., South Carolina's oldest brewery. The Pyatt family, which founded Catawba in 1999, will retain full ownership of both breweries. The purchase should be finalized by the end of the year. Even though the deal's not totally done, Catawba owner Billy Pyatt said change is already brewing.
We're not saying you should skip the wine this Thanksgiving (your aunt Mae might stage a revolt). But what we are saying is that beer can be pretty versatile, and local breweries have some diverse options out there to suit your holiday food. Sours in particular contrast well with the rich foods likely to grace your holiday table. That's why we turned first to Hi-Wire Brewing, which has a slew of fascinating sours in its ever-evolving portfolio.
MORGANTON - The only Animal Welfare Act-approved poultry processing facility in the southeast closed its doors last month, leaving farmers in six states scrambling to fill holiday orders. The nearest U.S. Department of Agriculture-approved slaughterhouses are in Ohio, Kentucky, Kansas and Alabama, and some farmers said the future of local poultry may have been jeopardized by the closure.
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".
