In a stated effort to become the first beer on Mars, the company that makes Budweiser is shooting barley seeds up to the International Space Station that floats approximately 220 miles above the earth. Fulfilling a promise made at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, last March, Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) will send 20 of its own malting barley seeds up on a SpaceX CRS-13 rocket that launches from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on December 4.
As tequila races to the top of the best-seller charts, American drinkers are having a good time discovering some of its lesser-known Mexican relatives. Among them, mezcal holds unwavering dominance … but savvy sippers recognize two more obscure offerings that are sneaking up from behind: raicilla and bacanora.
Like cranberry sauce, which cuts through the comforting fog of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, the category known as sour beers deserves a place at the Thanksgiving table. Some are fruity, but all deliver varying degrees of refreshing tartness. Until Louis Pasteur, most beer was made by exposing wort (unfermented liquid) to yeasts and bacteria in the air. The results were naturally tart. Brewing today is as much science as art; yet far from disappearing, sour beers are in vogue.
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".
