“Brewers would be using malt from down the road, hops from a local farmer, water from their municipality, and ordering their yeast from California,” said Ross, who met Richard Preiss in 2013 while they were working together in a biochemistry lab at the University of Guelph. For Angus Ross, starting up a yeast bank was a way to right an obvious wrong.
Oh sure, we’ve been drinking (and producing) more and more wine over the last few decades, and we’ve got an excellent whisky heritage. But when it comes down to it, beer still accounts for the lion’s share of money spent on drinking in this country. So what, then, could be a more Canadian way to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday than a case of beer with brews from across the country? For more on Canada 150 Celebrations“We’ve got a lot of history of beer in Canada.
A bit of funk can liven up your evening. No, we’re not talking about George Clinton, though the grandmaster can still groove with the best of them. (No, we’re not talking about Bruno Mars, either). Instead, the funk we’re talking about here is produced by the artist known as Brettanomyces. Never heard of Brett? Then you clearly haven’t been hanging out with the cool kids. At least not the brewing ones.
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".
