While craft beer remains one of the consistent bright spots in an industry stuck in decline, the rapid growth during its boom is showing signs of fraying. Case volume in the craft segment is up 2.2 percent year-to-date, according to Nielsen all-outlet data. But it was down a tenth of a point in the most-recent four weeks, underscoring that the unbridled growth of the segment is in a tenuous position, at best.
When he takes the top spot at Anheuser-Busch InBev’s North American unit in January, Michel Doukeris has a clear mandate: deliver top-line growth. The 44-year-old Brazilian, who has been with the company since 1996, will replace João Castro Neves as CEO of the company’s U.S. division, Anheuser-Busch. Doukeris is faced with a task that Castro Neves could not achieve: turning around the fortunes of Anheuser-Busch’s two largest brands: Budweiser and Bud Light.
Disconnect: Where will you spend your holiday - being hustled in a big city or by a bird in the forest? What do you plan to do this summer? How will you relax? For many, summer means an opportunity to get away, often to distant parts of the country, to swim, fish or tramp. For others, their preference is to head for the bright lights and bustle of the shopping malls and amusement arcades of a big city, not necessarily even in New Zealand.
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".
