They say everything that’s out of style eventually comes back in. Nostalgia is ever present, and many times the things we’ve loved from the past become viable after we thought we’d closed the casket on them. At Martin House Brewing in Fort Worth, one of the brewery’s early favorites is making a comeback. River House Saison was one of the brewery’s original beers and has always been noted as being owner and head brewer Cody Martin’s favorite.
Several years ago, if you’d offered someone a sour beer in a can, they’d probably think you had an infected beer. Canned craft beer used to be rarer, and to suggest that something as esoteric and niche (at the time) would be packaged in a can would have sounded rather ludicrous. Now, of course, it’s starting to seem like more beers are packaged in cans than in bottles. It’s a wave that doesn’t appear to be cresting anytime soon, and sour beers are no exception.
Taking something original and putting a twist on it is nothing new. Food has endless examples of this with restaurants constantly taking their most popular menu items and adding a topping here or an ingredient there to make them seemingly brand new. Filmmakers employ this also with re-released special editions of movies. Make a few small changes, and it’s a new product. Breweries employ this technique across the board.
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".
