click to enlarge What it is: A brand new spirit from The Montana Distillery. How new? The release party was held Sept. 9 and the distillery's Woody Street tasting room is still developing its gin-specific cocktail menu. What it tastes like: Much like the distillery's award-winning vodka, Soiled Dove is a smooth, easy-to-drink gin heavy on the juniper notes.
This year, National Geographic marked the centennial of the National Park Service by running several parks-related stories, culminating in an all-Yellowstone issue in May. Bozeman's David Quammen, a contributing writer to the magazine and author of the award-winning book Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic, was involved in early discussions on how to approach the issue.
Live albums often just feel like you're getting served up lesser versions of the studio songs you already know and love. There are great live albums out there, of course. Motorhead's No Sleep Til Hammersmith rules because those versions of the songs are so ramped up and fluid.
Somewhere along the way James Lee Burke changed. That's a funny thing to say about someone who's been as consistent as Burke's been over the course of 35 novels, two collections of short stories and nearly three decades on The New York Times' bestseller list.
click to enlarge What you're drinking: The latest seasonal from Great Burn Brewing. This traditional Belgian ale is brewed with 20 pounds of pitted and crushed Flathead cherries and local honey, but, rest assured, it's not at all a fruity-tasting or too-sweet beer. What it does taste like: A traditional Belgian ale with a subtle cherry finish.
click to enlarge What it is: The sort of refreshing cocktail you're reaching for during the dog days of summer. Also, Mexico's most beloved cocktail-even more popular than a margarita. How to make it: Combine two ounces of reposado tequila (that means "aged;" we recommend Herradura), a half-ounce of fresh lime juice, a splash of club soda and grapefruit juice over ice in a highball glass.
For two months, Katie Barnes ate the type of dessert that would leave most people salivating: deep-fried bunyols (also known as buñuelos) with dark chocolate filling, accompanied by a rhubarb caramel sauce, fresh strawberries and pistachio-butter ice cream topped with caramel brittle. But there was a catch. Or a few catches, actually.
What you're drinking: A Grizzly Berry, made with The Montana Distillery's signature Woody St. Premium Vodka, puree from local huckleberries and organic lemonade, topped with soda and a lemon wedge. It's one of the cocktails available at the distillery's downtown tasting room, located on (you guessed it) Woody Street, around the corner from the Silver Dollar Bar.

The New York Times published his obituary earlier this month. Without a movie review from the Missoula Independent, the Times may not have published the obituary at all.
Anthony Bourdain's award-winning CNN travel show, "Parts Unknown," traveled to Butte, Livingston and some surrounding areas late last year. That episode, which also features some of the last footage of author and poet Jim Harrison, premieres Sunday night. Bourdain has long been a fan of Harrison - and, by extension, Montana.
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
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".
