"Porter uslubidagi pivo birinchi marta XIX asrda savdogar dengizchilar va qo'lda ishlovchilar tomonidan ommalashgan", deyiladi xabarda. "Ishsiz muxbir xuddi shunday urf -odat bo'yicha ishlab chiqarilgan, shuning uchun ham kasbni hurmat qilish va ahamiyatsizlikka olib keladi."
Darvozabon "Amerika jurnalistikasining kelajagi kabi qorong'i va achchiq" shokolad va qovurilgan arpaning ta'miga ega. Bu kun bo'yi ichish uchun etarlicha silliq bo'lgan juda mazali nonushta. Spirtli ichimliklar miqdori yuqori, albatta, 6,2 foiz spirt.
Yorliqning kulgili nusxasi hatto hukumatning shishadagi ogohlantirishlariga ham kiradi. "Spirtli ichimliklar ichish sizning mashina haydash qobiliyatingizga putur etkazadi, lekin siz uyg'onib, ertaga ishga borishingiz shart emas.

"O'tgan yil bizning biznesimizning ayrim qismlari COVID-19 cheklovlariga salbiy ta'sir ko'rsatishi tufayli juda qiyin bo'lgan bo'lsa-da, biz bu missiyaga rang-barang odamlar uchun o'yin maydonini tenglashtirish va nomutanosib ravishda suiiste'mol qilingan afro-amerikaliklarga yordam berish uchun ishonamiz. buzilgan va noaniq adliya tizimi ", deya qo'shimcha qildi Ford Savadogo.
Mets ayol muxbirga aniq matnlarni yuborganidan keyin GMni ishdan bo'shatdi
Nyu -York (AP) - Jared Porter yulduzdan ishsizga aylandi - tom ma'noda bir kechada.
Nyu -York Metsga bosh menejer sifatida ishga kirganidan bir oydan ko'proq vaqt o'tgach, Porter seshanba kuni 2016 yilda Chikago Cubs shtab -kvartirasida muxbir ayolga shahvoniy, chaqirilmagan matnli xabarlar va tasvirlarni yuborgani uchun ishdan bo'shatildi.
ESPN dushanba kuni kechqurun xabar berishicha, Porter ayolga o'nlab javobsiz matnlarni, jumladan "tik, yalang'och olatni" rasmini yuborgan. ESPN xabar berishicha, u matn tarixining nusxasini olgan va u yuborgan ko'plab xabarlar va fotosuratlar Internetda hisobotda ko'rsatilgan.
Taxminan to'qqiz soat o'tgach, Mets kompaniyasining yangi egasi Stiv Koen Twitterda Porter ishdan bo'shatilganini e'lon qildi.
"Biz bugun ertalab Jared Porterni to'xtatdik", deb yozadi Cohen seshanba. "Birinchi matbuot anjumanida men halollikning ahamiyati haqida gapirdim va men buni nazarda tutdim. Bunday xatti -harakatlarga nol tolerantlik bo'lishi kerak. ”
Taxminan 30 minut o'tgach, Mets jamoa prezidenti Sandy Aldersonning bayonoti e'lon qilindi, bu harakat darhol kuchga kirdi.
"Jaredning harakatlari, kecha oshkor qilingan voqealarda aks etganidek, Metsning professionallik va shaxsiy xulq -atvor standartlariga javob bermadi", dedi Alderson.
Nyu-York 41 yoshli Porterni o'tgan oy ishga oldi. U o'tgan to'rt mavsumni Arizona Diamondbacks bilan katta vitse-prezident va bosh menejer yordamchisi sifatida o'tkazgandan so'ng, to'rt yillik shartnomaga rozi bo'ldi.
Mets Porterni yangi GM bilan almashtirishni rejalashtirganmi, hozircha aniq emas. Porter beysbol bilan shug'ullanadigan Aldersonga xabar berdi.
Hisobotda ayol kimligi aniqlanmagan. ESPNning aytishicha, yaqinda u o'z ismini oshkor qilmaslik sharti bilan kelishni tanlagan, chunki u o'z mamlakatidagi reaksiyadan qo'rqadi.
Hisobotga dushanba kuni kechqurun bergan bayonotida, Alderson Mets "bu jiddiy masala bo'yicha faktlarni" ko'rib chiqqach, "kuzatib borishini" aytdi.
"Men Jared Porter bilan to'g'ridan -to'g'ri 2016 yilda sodir bo'lgan voqealar haqida gaplashdim, ular haqida bugun kechqurun bizga birinchi marta xabar berishdi. Jared menga jiddiy xato qilganini tan oldi, xatti -harakati uchun javobgarlikni o'z zimmasiga oldi, pushaymonligini bildirdi va bundan oldin qilgan qilmishi uchun uzr so'radi ”, - dedi Alderson o'z bayonotida.
"Mets bu masalalarga jiddiy yondashadi, barcha xodimlarimizdan professional va axloqiy xulq -atvorni kutadi va (ESPN) hikoyasida tasvirlangan xatti -harakatlarga yo'l qo'ymaydi."
ESPNning aytishicha, bu ayol beysbolning asosiy ligasini yoritish uchun Qo'shma Shtatlarga ko'chib o'tgan chet ellik muxbir edi. U Porter bilan 2016 yil iyun oyida Yanki stadionining liftida uchrashgan va u xalqaro beysbol haqida qisqacha gaplashganini va vizitkalarini almashganini aytgan. U ESPNga aytganidek, bu ular gaplashgan yagona vaqt.
Tasodifiy boshlangan matn almashinuvidan so'ng, Porter o'zining tashqi ko'rinishini maqtab boshladi, uni turli shaharlarda uchrashishga taklif qildi va nega unga e'tibor bermayotganini so'radi, dedi ESPN.
U unga qo'pol rasm yuborganidan so'ng, ayol Porterning 60 dan ortiq xabarlariga e'tibor bermadi, chunki u eng qo'pol fotosuratni yubordi, ESPN. Ayol ESPNga bergan intervyusida, u qasddan bir nechta yirik liga o'yinlarida undan qochishga harakat qilgan va Porterdan kelgan matnlar uning jurnalistikani tark etib, o'z mamlakatiga qaytishiga qaror qilgan.
Porter 2016 yilda yalang'och rasmni ko'rgan ayolga uzr so'radi va uning xabarlari "o'ta nomunosib, juda haqoratli va chiziqdan chiqib ketgan" deb yozdi.
ESPN xabar berishicha, u dushanba kuni kechqurun Porter bilan bog'langan va u ayol bilan SMS yozganini tan olgan. Avvaliga u hech qanday rasmini yubormaganini aytdi, lekin birjalarda selfi va boshqa rasmlarni yuborganini ko'rsatganida, u "aniqroq tasvirlar meniki emas. Bular hazil-mutoyibali tasvirlarga o'xshaydi ",-deb yozadi ESPN.
Porter bu hikoyani nashr etishni niyat qilganmi yoki yo'qmi, deb so'raganidan so'ng, keyinchalik qo'shimcha izoh berishdan bosh tortmasdan oldin ko'proq vaqt talab qildi, dedi ESPN.
Noyabr oyi boshida Koen klubni Wilpon va Katz oilalaridan 2,42 milliard dollarga sotib olganidan buyon, taniqli frantsisko Lindor va boshqa bir qancha mashhur futbolchilarni sotib, muxlislarni quvvatlantirgan Mets uchun yana bir noqulay voqea.
Oxirgi mavsumda, oldingi GM Brodie Van Vagenen davrida, Mets sobiq uyushgan Karlos Beltranni menejer sifatida yollashdi, faqat u bilan aloqani uzish uchun 2 1/2 oy o'tgach, u MLBning Xyuston tomonidan noqonuniy belgi o'g'irlanishi haqidagi tergovida ishtirok etgan, Beltran Astros o'yinchisi bo'lgan. 2017 yilda.
Beltran Mets tomonidan - bitta o'yinni boshqarmasdan - bir yil oldin, 2020 yil 16 -yanvarda, 77 kun davom etgan. Porter "Mets GM" GM sifatida tanilganidan 40 kun o'tmay ishdan bo'shatildi, u buni "orzu qilingan ish" deb atadi.
Diamondbacks xizmatidan oldin, Porter Theo Epstein ostida Boston Red Sox va Chicago Cubs bilan ishlagan, Bostonning oldingi ofisida uchta jahon chempionatida g'olib bo'lgan va Cubs bilan boshqasida. ESPN xabar berishicha, Porter bu xabarlarni ayolga yuborganida Cubsning professional skaut bo'yicha direktori bo'lgan.
Ingliz tili va Amerika madaniyati bilan to'liq tanish bo'lmagan ayol, tarjimondan Porterga "iltimos, haqoratli rasmlarni yoki xabarlarni yuborishni bas qilishni" so'rab xabar yozishda yordam oldi. U bir necha bor matn orqali kechirim so'radi va to'xtashini aytdi, deb xabar beradi ESPN.
ESPN xabar berishicha, u o'sha paytda matnlarni ko'rgan yoki aytganlarini aytgan boshqa uch kishi bilan suhbatlashgan.
Ayol oxir -oqibat xo'jayinlariga xabar berdi va 2016 yilda o'z mamlakatidan advokat va Cubs xodimi bilan bog'landi, deb xabar beradi ESPN. U xodimni oshkor qilishni xohlamadi, chunki u jazodan qo'rqardi, ESPN ma'lumotlariga ko'ra.
Uning so'zlariga ko'ra, "Cubs" xodimi Porterga shaxsan kechirim so'rashini aytgan, lekin uni ko'rishni xohlamagan. Uning so'zlariga ko'ra, xodim uni Porterga qarshi sudga shikoyat qilmoqchi bo'lganmi yoki yo'qmi, deb bir necha marta bosgan va bir necha oy o'tgach, xodimni 2017 yilgi bahorgi mashg'ulotlarda ko'rganida g'azablangan va u hali ham o'ylayotganini aytgan.
ESPN xabar berishicha, xodim dushanba kuni Porter va ayol bilan bo'lgan vaziyatni muhokama qilganini tasdiqlagan, lekin g'azablanishini rad etgan. Ayol qonuniy chora ko'rmadi va ESPNga aytmoqchi emasligini aytdi.
"Bu voqea bugun kechqurun bizning e'tiborimizga tushdi va biz bu voqea haqida tashkilotga hech qachon xabar berilmaganini bilmaymiz", deyiladi Cubs dushanba kuni ESPN telekanaliga bergan bayonotida.
"Agar bizga xabar berilganida, biz tezkor choralar ko'rar edik, chunki taxmin qilingan xatti -harakatlar bizning odob -axloq qoidalarimizga ziddir", - deyiladi klub xabarida. "Bu ikki shaxs endi tashkilotda bo'lmasa -da, biz jinsiy zo'ravonlik masalalariga jiddiy qaraymiz va bu masalani o'rganishni rejalashtirmoqdamiz."
Koen 2010-18 yillardagi Mets kompaniyasining bosh menejeri Aldersonni jamoa prezidenti etib qaytardi va u darhol Van Vagenenni va uning ofisidagi bir nechta yordamchilarini ishdan bo'shatdi.
Jamoa dastlab beysbol operatsiyalari bo'yicha prezidentni yollamoqchi bo'ldi, lekin mutaxassislik bo'yicha bir nechta nomzodlardan intervyu olishga ruxsat ololmagani va hech bo'lmaganda bittasi Nyu -Yorkka ko'chib o'tishni xohlamagach, yo'nalishini o'zgartirdi.
Buning o'rniga, 73 yoshli Alderson beysbol operatsiyalarini o'z zimmasiga oldi va Porter bu rolga aylanishi mumkin edi.
"O'ylaymanki, biz eng ko'p gapirgan narsa bu faqat madaniy o'zgarish", dedi Porter o'tgan oy GM sifatida tanishtirilganda. "Tashkilotga yaxshi odamlarni qo'shish. Tashkiliy madaniyatni oshirish ».
Ascension pivo ishlab chiqaruvchi kompaniya Pivo tokchasini tayyorlang
(Natan Myuller, 2016 yil 30 -yanvar)
Novi, MI – O'n besh millik Porter. Skotti biladi. H.O.M.E.S. 2.0. Feniks. 800 funtli Gorilla.
Adam Czap - Gollivud filmlarining eklektik aralashmasi rejissyori, yoki yangi mikro pivo zavodini boshqaradi.
Yaxshiyamki, pivo ixlosmandlari uchun bu ikkinchisi.
Ascension pivo ishlab chiqarish kompaniyasi avgust oyida do'stlari va oilasini qulay va tasalli muhitda yig'ish g'oyasi bilan ochilgan.
"Menga uning ijtimoiy tomoni juda yoqadi", deydi Novi shahrida yashovchi Tszap. "Biz Ascensionda yaratgan narsalar - bu haqiqatan ham tinch muhit, bu erda odamlar bir -birlari bilan bo'lishdan zavqlanishadi. Bu joy menga yoqadigan narsalardan biridir. ”
42000 Grand River prospektida, Meadowbrook yo'lining g'arbiy qismida joylashgan, Ascension yangi tayyorlangan IPA, ales, stout va ularning orasidagi hamma narsalarni o'nga yaqin kranlarni taklif qiladi. 2008 yilda garajida pivo tayyorlashni boshlagan Czapning aytishicha, Ascension xaridorlarning o'zgaruvchan pivo ta'mini kutib olish qobiliyati bilan faxrlanadi.
"Biz doimo yangi g'oyalarni qidiramiz va yangi retseptlarni sinab ko'ramiz", dedi u. "Bu biz kabi kichikroq tizimga ega bo'lishning ajoyib jihatlaridan biridir. Biz juda harakatchanmiz va pivo zavodiga katta xarajatsiz, biz yangi narsalarni sinab ko'rishimiz mumkin. Agar u ishlamasa, u ishlamaydi, lekin biz shu paytgacha juda yaxshi muvaffaqiyatlarga erishdik ».
Brandon Sabo - Ascensionning asosiy pivo ishlab chiqaruvchisi. Uning vazifasi - sotib olishdan tortib hamma narsani qilish boshqa maxsus partiya bilan ish tugagach, uskunani tozalash uchun ingredientlar. "Ko'p retseptlar hamkorlikdir", dedi Sabo. "Adam ko'p yordam beradi. Ba'zilar uning individual retseptlari, ba'zilari esa o'zimning o'ziga xos retseptlarim. "
Uy pivo ishlab chiqaruvchisidan mikrob ishlab chiqaruvchisigacha bo'lgan sayohat aslida 2008 yilga to'g'ri keladi. 32 yoshli Tszap Michigan shtati bosh barmog'ida 1300 ga yaqin aholi yashaydigan Braun -Siti shahrida o'sgan. Uning ikkala ota -onasi ham o'qituvchi bo'lgan va Odam Michigan universitetida bakalavr darajasini olgan holda ularning izidan bormoqchi bo'lgan.
O'qitishni boshlagandan so'ng, Tsap bu kasb uning uchun emasligini tezda anglab etdi. U maktabga stomatologiyaga qaytdi, lekin fotografiya biznesini boshladi. Bu yon ish tezda to'la vaqtli konsertga aylandi va u rafiqasi bilan haligacha to'y va portret Czap Studiosini boshqaradi. butik, shuningdek Novida.
Uyda ishlab chiqariladigan xato uni fotografiya karerasida bir necha yil tishladi. "O'ylaymanki, menda ham xuddi shunday bo'lgan, xuddi shunday dam olaman deb o'ylagan va pivosini biroz arzonroq sotib oladigan ko'plab yigitlar bilan sodir bo'lgan. Lekin bu qandaydir hazil, chunki quyon teshigi yangi qismlarni sotib olish uchun cheksizdir ”, dedi u.
100 dollarlik sarmoya unga birinchi partiyasini yaratishga imkon berdi. Bir nechta sinov va xatolardan so'ng, Czap uyda 30-40 galon suvni ushlab turish uchun etarlicha pivo ishlab chiqarishni boshladi.
U pivo tayyorlash jarayonidan juda zavqlangan bo'lsa -da, uning ijodini baham ko'rish, albatta, yuksalishga olib keldi. "Ular mening pivomni yoqtirishdi va:" Siz buni sotishingiz mumkin ", dedilar. Men ahmoq bo'lganim uchun, men ular bilan rozi bo'ldim."
Chzapning fotografiya biznesi bilan oldingi tajribasi unga uy pivo ishlab chiqaruvchisidan mikro pivo ishlab chiqaruvchisiga o'tishga yordam berdi. U bir necha yil oldin biznes -reja tuzishni boshladi va 2014 yilning dekabriga kelib, uning e'tiqodidan kelib chiqqan Ascensionni qurdi.
O'zining muloyimligidan tashqari, Czap biznesni boshlash uchun jiddiy sabab borligini aytdi. "Men boshqa shaharlarga mikro pivo zavodiga borishdan charchadim", deb tushuntirdi u. "Menimcha, bu" Novi "ga kerak bo'lgan narsa, chunki mahalliy rang ko'p yillar davomida yo'q bo'lib ketgan."
Ko'rsatkichlar Czapning haq ekanini ko'rsatadi. Osmonga ko'tarilish payshanbadan shanbagacha eng gavjum, lekin ko'p kechalarda doimiy mijozlar oqimi bor.
Va ularni nafaqat yaxshi pivo olib keladi. Ascension aperitiflarning to'liq qatorini o'z ichiga oladi. sendvichlar, salatlar va sho'rvalar. "Biz yangi, sog'lom ovqatlanishni ta'kidlaymiz", dedi Czap. "Biz fritöz yoki mikroto'lqinli pechdan foydalanmaymiz."
Shunga qaramay, Ascension pivo ishlab chiqaruvchi kompaniya. Birinchi homiy kirmasidan ancha oldin, Sabo juda qattiq ishlaydi. O'rtacha, u haftasiga uch-to'rtta 150 gallonli partiyalarni tayyorlaydi. Uning aytishicha, har bir partiyani ishlab chiqarishga 12-16 soat vaqt ketadi. Bu shuni anglatadiki, donni Ascension mashida fermentatsiyalanadigan shakarga aylantirishdan tortib, chovgumni qaynatishga va kerakli miqdorda xamirturush qo'shishgacha.
Sabo barcha ingredientlarni mahalliy darajada sotib oladi va Detroyt daryosidan suv ishlatadi. "Bizda dunyodagi eng yaxshi pivo suvlari bor", deydi u. "Biz qiladigan yagona narsa - bu ftor va xlorni chiqarib tashlash. Biz Michiganda bo'lganimizdan juda baxtiyormiz, u erda suvimiz juda sifatli ”.
Ascensionning pivo uslubi gambitni alkogol tarkibiga o'xshab, yorug'likdan kuchli 800 funtli Gorilagacha boshqaradi. Czapning aytishicha, xilma -xillik dizaynga bog'liq. U va Sabo ma'lum bir kunda nima ishlab chiqarishsa, sifat birinchi o'rinda turadi. "Men katta pivolarni yaxshi ko'raman", deya qo'shimcha qildi u. "Haqiqatan ham katta, xushbo'y mahsulotlar. Men, albatta, oddiy odam emasman. "

(CBS News) 12,000+ imzo va Ma'lumot erkinligi to'g'risidagi qonun talablari bilan ifoda etilgan petitsiyaga javoban, Obama ma'muriyati shanba kuni ilgari oshkor qilinmagan, talab qilinadigan ba'zi ma'lumotlarni e'lon qildi: Oq uyning pivo retsepti.

"Bir nechta dastlabki qoralamalardan so'ng biz mahalliy pivo do'konidan kelgan ajoyib retseptlarga keldik. Biz Oq uyda ishlaydigan bir necha uy pivo ishlab chiqaruvchilardan maslahat oldik.
"Rostini aytsam, biz pivoning juda yaxshi chiqqaniga hayron bo'ldik, chunki oldin hech birimiz pivo demaganmiz", deb yozadi Kass.
Oq uy, shuningdek, Oq uyning pivo tayyorlash jarayonini tushuntiruvchi kadr ortidagi videorolikni chiqardi. (Siz bu videoni chap tomonda joylashgan pleyerni bosish orqali ko'rishingiz mumkin).

O'shandan beri retsept bo'yicha so'rovlar Oq uyning "Biz odamlar" petitsiya sayti orqali, FOIA so'rovlari orqali va Reddit savol-javob sessiyasida amalga oshirildi.
"Tez orada chiqadi! Men o'z tajribamdan ayta olaman, mazali", - dedi prezident Reddit -dagi retsept haqida so'raganda.
Bugun prezident Ayovada saylovoldi kampaniyasini o'tkazar ekan, ma'muriyat va'dasini bajardi.

Haqiqiy yuk tashuvchilar 1980 -yillarning oxiri va 1990 -yillarning boshlarida AQShda pivo ishlab chiqarishning birinchi bumiga qadar qaytib kelishmadi va shu kungacha pivo musobaqalarida hakamlar qorong'i, qovurilgan arpadan foydalaning va yuk tashuvchilarga qaraganda kamroq suv ishlating, deb ta'kidlaydilar.

Mets fire GM after he sent explicit texts to female reporter
NEW YORK (AP) — Jared Porter went from rising star to unemployed — literally overnight.
Just more than a month after joining the New York Mets as general manager, Porter was fired Tuesday for sending sexually explicit, uninvited text messages and images to a female reporter in 2016 when he was working for the Chicago Cubs in their front office.
ESPN reported late Monday that Porter sent dozens of unanswered texts to the woman, including a picture of “an erect, naked penis.” ESPN said it obtained a copy of the text history, and many of the messages and photos he sent were displayed in the report online.
About nine hours later, new Mets owner Steve Cohen posted on Twitter that Porter had been fired.
“We have terminated Jared Porter this morning,” Cohen wrote Tuesday. “In my initial press conference I spoke about the importance of integrity and I meant it. There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior.”
Approximately 30 minutes after that, the Mets released a statement from team president Sandy Alderson saying the move was effective immediately.
“Jared’s actions, as reflected by events disclosed last night, failed to meet the Mets’ standards for professionalism and personal conduct,” Alderson said.
New York hired the 41-year-old Porter last month. He agreed to a four-year contract after spending the past four seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks as senior vice president and assistant general manager.
It was not immediately clear if the Mets planned to replace Porter with a new GM. Porter reported to Alderson, who is running baseball operations.
The woman was not identified in the report. ESPN said she recently chose to come forward only on condition of anonymity because she is afraid of backlash in her home country.
In a statement Monday night addressing the report, Alderson said the Mets would “follow up” as they reviewed “the facts regarding this serious issue.”
“I have spoken directly with Jared Porter regarding events that took place in 2016 of which we were made aware tonight for the first time. Jared has acknowledged to me his serious error in judgment, has taken responsibility for his conduct, has expressed remorse, and has previously apologized for his actions,” Alderson said in that statement.
“The Mets take these matters seriously, expect professional and ethical behavior from all of our employees, and certainly do not condone the conduct described in (the ESPN) story.”
ESPN said the woman was a foreign correspondent who had moved to the United States to cover Major League Baseball. She met Porter in a Yankee Stadium elevator in June 2016, and she said they spoke briefly about international baseball and exchanged business cards. She told ESPN that was the only time they ever spoke.
After text exchanges that began casually, Porter started complimenting her looks, inviting her to meet him in different cities and asking why she was ignoring him, ESPN said.
After he sent her a lewd picture, the woman ignored more than 60 messages from Porter before he sent the most vulgar photo, according to ESPN. The woman told ESPN she intentionally tried to avoid him at a couple of big league ballparks and the texts from Porter ultimately contributed to her decision to leave journalism and return to her home country.
Porter texted apologies to the woman in 2016 after she saw the naked picture and wrote to him that his messages were “extremely inappropriate, very offensive, and getting out of line,” ESPN reported.
ESPN said it contacted Porter on Monday evening, and he acknowledged texting with the woman. At first, he said he hadn’t sent any pictures of himself, but when informed the exchanges show that he sent selfies and other pictures, he said “the more explicit ones are not of me. Those are like, kinda like joke-stock images,” ESPN reported.
After asking whether the outlet intended to run a story, Porter requested more time before later declining further comment, ESPN said.
It’s another embarrassing development for the Mets, who have energized fans by acquiring star shortstop Francisco Lindor and several other notable players since Cohen purchased the club from the Wilpon and Katz families for $2.42 billion in early November.
Last offseason, under previous GM Brodie Van Wagenen, the Mets hired former slugger Carlos Beltrán as manager only to cut ties with him 2 1/2 months later when he was implicated in MLB’s investigation of illegal sign stealing by Houston while Beltrán was an Astros player in 2017.
Beltrán was let go by the Mets — without managing a single game — just more than a year ago on Jan. 16, 2020, following a tenure that lasted 77 days. Porter was fired less than 40 days after being introduced as GM of the Mets, which he called “a dream job.”
Before his Diamondbacks tenure, Porter worked under Theo Epstein with the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs, winning three World Series championships in Boston’s front office and another with the Cubs. ESPN said Porter was the Cubs’ director of professional scouting when he sent the messages to the woman.
Not fully familiar with the English language and American culture, the woman received help from an interpreter in constructing a message to Porter asking him to “please stop sending offensive photos” or messages. He apologized by text multiple times and said he would stop, ESPN reported.
ESPN said it interviewed three other people who said they saw or were told about the texts at the time.
The woman eventually informed her bosses and was connected in 2016 with a lawyer and a Cubs employee from her home country, ESPN reported. She didn’t want to identify the employee publicly because she feared retribution, according to ESPN.
She said the Cubs employee told her Porter wanted to apologize in person, but she didn’t want to see him. She said the employee pressed her repeatedly on whether she planned to file a lawsuit against Porter and months later got angry when she saw the employee at spring training in 2017 and said she was still considering it, ESPN reported.
ESPN said the employee confirmed Monday that he discussed the situation with Porter and the woman but denied getting angry. The woman did not pursue legal action and told ESPN she doesn’t plan to.
“This story came to our attention tonight and we are not aware of this incident ever being reported to the organization,” the Cubs said in a statement given to ESPN late Monday.
“Had we been notified, we would have taken swift action as the alleged behavior is in violation of our code of conduct,” the club said. “While these two individuals are no longer with the organization, we take issues of sexual harassment seriously and plan to investigate the matter.”
Cohen brought back Alderson, the Mets’ general manager from 2010-18, as team president and he immediately fired Van Wagenen and several of his top front-office aides.
The team initially sought to hire a president of baseball operations but changed course when it was unable to attain permission to interview several candidates around the majors and at least one did not want to move to New York.
Instead, the 73-year-old Alderson has taken over baseball operations, and the idea was for Porter to potentially grow into that role.
“I think what we’ve talked about the most is just a cultural shift, for one,” Porter said when introduced as GM last month. “Adding good people to the organization. Improving on the organizational culture.”
Journalist Brews Unemployed Reporter Porter - Recipes
THIS FOURTH of July, celebrate the holiday with the beer style that defines America's independence from the British: Porter.
Yes, I know it's a bit dark for warm weather. Don't worry. Its alcohol is fairly low (about 5-6 percent) and its roasted flavors pair wonderfully with hamburgers or grilled chicken.
But there's an even bigger reason to enjoy porter this weekend, namely patriotism.
"To say it is equal to any of London, the usual standard for excellence, would undervalue it, because as it regards either wholesome qualities or palatableness, it is much superior . . . "
That's physician, scientific thinker and author James Mease, writing 199 years ago on the eve of the War of 1812. For the early part of its history, American porter was all about patriotism, not to mention the young nation's distaste for all things English.
Porter was a wholly British invention, an aged, slightly sour ale that was brewed dark and strong, earning its name because of its popularity among carriage porters.
Its export to the Colonies helped define the superiority of our overlords. The professionally trained English brewed with the finest roasted malts the primitive rabble of the Colonies substituted with molasses and licorice.
Not surprisingly, Colonial boycotts of British goods only occasionally targeted those luscious shipments of porter. You can imagine the patriot Samuel Adams eyeing wooden casks of fine English ale loaded aboard the ships in Boston Harbor and suggesting, "Hey, let's dump the tea into the harbor instead."
Kicking redcoat butt changed things. Complaining shortly after the Revolution that "we have already been too long subject to British prejudices," George Washington launched a "Buy American" campaign, declaring, "I use no porter or cheese in my family, but such as is made in America both these articles may now be purchased of an excellent quality."
His favorite: the Philadelphia porter made by Robert Hare, a British-trained brewer who loathed the English.
By most accounts, it wasn't just patriotism that gave American porter its reputation for excellence. There are reports of shipments leaving Philadelphia and making it to Calcutta, India, without spoilage. Meanwhile, writes Mease, repressive English duties on malt and hops forced Britain's brewers to dumb down their famous product with additions of aloe, tobacco, quassia root and sulfates.
By the early 20th century, with Burton pale ale on the rise, porter was all but extinct in the United Kingdom.
In America, the style survived largely because German immigrant brewers - whose crisp, pale lagers would eventually dominate - adapted their early recipes to produce a dark porter made with lager yeast. The hybrid variety is still alive in the form of Yuengling Porter, black, roasty and mildly hopped, but light-bodied like a lager.
In the early '70s, San Francisco's Anchor Brewing returned us to the early porter that quenched the thirst of our young nation. Brown, smooth and robust, it's a sublime celebration of darkened malts and fresh hops.
Back in Philadelphia, where it all began, Yards brews George Washington Tavern Porter just blocks from Robert Hare's old brewery. It balances dark malts and molasses with an aggressive but compatible portion of Willamette and East Kent Goldings hops in a recipe taken from George Washington's papers.
Today, dozens of American craft brewers view porter as the perfect palette for more adventuresome flavors. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate and smoked malts often find their way into the barrel, with results ranging from curious to astounding.
Try one of these this Fourth of July: Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Smuttynose Robust Porter, Sierra Nevada Porter, Deschutes Black Butte Porter, Rogue Mocha Porter, Avery New World Porter, Stone Smoked Porter.
On eve of 125th birthday, S.F.'s Anchor Brewing is changing its vintage beer labels
Anchor Brewing, which turns 125 in February, has rebranded its core four beers for the first time ever.

Anchor Brewing’s most famous product, steam beer, has a new look — in part to make it clear that the brewery’s name is not "Anchor Steam."
Esther Mobley / The Chronicle Show More Show Less
For the first time ever, Anchor Brewing&rsquos four main beers are getting a new look.
Some breweries change their labels all the time, but when it comes to Anchor, a rebrand carries special significance. This marks the first time that the beloved, vintage-feeling labels for the porter, California lager and Liberty Ale beers have gotten a makeover &mdash and the first time in modern history that there&rsquos been a significant change to the label for the brewery&rsquos oldest and most famous product, Anchor Steam.
&ldquoWe know it&rsquos going to be a shocking change to some people,&rdquo said Dane Volek, who runs Anchor&rsquos pilot brewing program. But, he said, coming up on the brewery&rsquos 125th birthday next month, &ldquoit seemed like a nice pivot point.&rdquo
Anchor Steam beer&rsquos new label is bright yellow with big blue lettering, a pared-down image compared with the busy, antique-looking label of the past. The goal, Volek said, was to retain a &ldquoretro-chic&rdquo look with the new packaging, but also to differentiate the name of the brewery (Anchor) from the name of the beer (steam), since that has long been a point of confusion for many consumers.
&ldquoWe still get some mail addressed to &lsquoAnchor Steam Brewery,&rsquo&rdquo Volek laughed.
The rebrand marks the first major change to Anchor&rsquos core beers since Japanese beer giant Sapporo acquired the San Francisco brewery in 2017.

These newly packaged beers will be available for to-go sales from Anchor&rsquos taproom in Potrero Hill and will roll out to retail outlets nationwide in February. This week only, the brewery is selling what it&rsquos calling &ldquoretro-priced&rdquo six-packs of Anchor Steam for just $1.25 apiece instead of the usual $9. (The brewery began taking orders Monday for pickup from the taproom Thursday through Sunday.)
The porter, Liberty Ale and California lager labels have not changed since they were introduced in 1972, 1975 and 2012 respectively, and the steam label has remained mostly unchanged since longtime owner Fritz Maytag revived the brewery in 1965. (The steam beer label did undergo minor tweaks around 2013, Volek said, but they were small enough that many drinkers likely didn&rsquot notice.)
Part of the goal of the rebrand was to distinguish the beers from each other. With the previous packaging, the labels for all of Anchor&rsquos mainstay beers all had the same color scheme. Now they&rsquore starkly different, with California Lager an electric green and Liberty Ale a deep blue. Anchor Porter&rsquos rebranded look feels the closest to its previous incarnation, with familiar-feeling cursive lettering across the bottle&rsquos round label.
The old labels on a few of Anchor Brewing’s best-known beers: Old Foghorn barleywine, Liberty Ale, Anchor Porter, Anchor Steam and Christmas Ale. After remaining unchanged for many years, some of the beers’ labels are getting a makeover.
In August, Tom Riley &mdash who started at Anchor 36 years ago, initially working on the packaging line &mdash took over as brewmaster from predecessor Scott Ungermann. In March, Anchor will add three new beers created by Volek to its permanent lineup: a tropical hazy IPA, a pilsner and a 100-calorie, gluten-reduced, mango-flavored golden ale called Little Weekend. That will be the first time since the 1970s that Anchor releases three new brews intended for year-round, indefinite production.
Volek said he&rsquos especially proud of Little Weekend, which is the sort of beer that health-conscious drinkers at the taproom have been clamoring for in recent years.
&ldquoIt&rsquos kind of going after the hard seltzer crowd, but I still wanted it to taste like beer,&rdquo he said.
The mango flavor is inspired by the success of the brewery&rsquos discontinued Mango Wheat.
Fritz Maytag of Anchor Brewing, March 28, 1978.
Gary Fong / The Chronicle 1978
The past decade has been a period of intense change at Anchor. Maytag, who elevated Anchor into what many consider to be America&rsquos first craft brewery, sold his business in 2010 to an investment group owned by two former Skyy Spirits executives. Anchor had long been known for sticking to a short roster of basic, tried and true, old-fashioned beers Maytag released only 10 styles in his 45-year tenure, becoming known for things like the antiquated-feeling Christmas Ale and Old Foghorn barleywine. After Maytag sold it, however, Anchor grew much more experimental, in large part thanks to Volek, releasing more of-the-moment brews like fruited beers and hazy IPAs.
A new design for Old Foghorn will debut at some point soon, Volek said, and it will look somewhat similar to the new look of Anchor Porter. Christmas Ale, the seasonal holiday beer whose recipe changes every year, is not expected to have a different label in 2021.
Need a Six-Pack? Hit the Basement
TIM ARTZ’S brewery is enclosed by glass walls on three sides and looks out onto a bluff of apple trees and a garden filled with beans, squash and 35 varieties of pepper. On a raw April morning, the brewery doors were open but the brewery itself was warm the gas burner below the 30-gallon brew tank was cranking at near full power.
Mr. Artz was already a good 90 minutes into his brew day the grain was milled and the hops were measured and waiting on a nearby table. It was just the moment for his wife to emerge from the house and ask if he and his guests would like a fresh mug of coffee.
Mr. Artz, 48, is just a home brewer, not a professional his main job is director of information technology at a health care firm. But with the elaborate set-up he has built and installed in his Florida room (there is a big cask for holding mash and an $1,800 fermentation tank, in addition to the 30-gallon kettle), he could easily be mistaken for much more than an amateur.
Home brewing, which was rendered illegal by Prohibition and not legalized again until 1979, is enjoying a resurgence. The American Homebrewers Association, based in Boulder, Colo., had just 11,724 members in 2006 that has since more than doubled, to 26,000. This increased interest, in turn, has fostered a mini-boom in brewing equipment, according to Gary Glass, who is the director of the association. “Home-brew supply shops reported a growth of 16 percent in gross revenue, according to 2009 numbers,” Mr. Glass said, referring to the change from the prior year. The numbers for 2010 are not yet available, he added, but he anticipates double-digit growth once again.
This increase has been aided by the rise of social clubs, books and competitions geared to home brewers, as well as by the success of microbreweries over the last two decades, which has inspired many amateur beermakers. The D.I.Y. and locavore movements have played a role, too. “There is a trend to do things more locally,” Mr. Glass said. “You don’t get any more local than doing it at home.”
Even the recession did not slow things, Mr. Glass added. “Part of the theory,” he said, “is that people have more time for hobbies when they are unemployed or underemployed.”
In a way, the revival recalls America’s roots. The Pilgrims are said to have landed at Plymouth Rock rather than continue on to Virginia, because they had run out of beer and wanted a fresh supply. Many founding fathers brewed ales on their farms. (George Washington’s recipe for a porter brewed with molasses, recently recreated by a Brooklyn brewer, has been commercially produced by the Shmaltz Brewing Company.) Even the Obamas have joined in they served an ale brewed at the White House and flavored with honey from the beehives there at their Super Bowl party this year.
For many people, home brewing summons visions of beat-up equipment that is stashed in a corner of a garage, dragged out only occasionally, powered by modest propane tanks normally attached to the barbecue and yielding just a few gallons. (Professional breweries measure output by the barrel — roughly 31 gallons each.)
But as the ranks of amateur brewers grow, more of them are like the Artz family, people with high-end equipment who brew lots of beer and have a dedicated brewing space in their homes.
“When we looked at the house and walked into the room, we both knew this is where the brewery would be,” said Dot Artz, who occasionally brews with her husband but on that April day was growing crystals in the kitchen with the couple’s 8-year-old son, Ben. (A true D.I.Y. family, they also forage for mushrooms, make their own soap, keep four beehives and smoke meat on a large smoker made out of a cleaned and repurposed oil drum.) The Artz family has also made substantial outlays for their pastime. Mr. Artz rolled his eyes and grinned mischievously when asked how much he has spent on brewing over the years. “A lot,” he said. “It is definitely not a cheap hobby.”
Some home brewers who invest heavily harbor ambitions of one day opening a professional brewery (as amateurs they cannot legally sell their wares). But other big spenders have no grand business plans they equate brewing to activities like golf: a pastime that is a labor of love, exploration, trial and error, frustration and, finally, pride, when the water, malt, hops and yeast combine just right to pour a perfect pint.
For these dedicated hobbyists who are willing to spend money, said Mr. Glass, beer equipment manufacturers, like Sabco, of Toledo, Ohio, and More Beer, of Concord, Calif., are now making high-end commercial-grade products for home use.
“It is still the exception, not the rule,” said Mr. Glass, who is emphatically not one of the high-end hobbyists. He brews about six times a year, and does so on a Frankenstein system, an affectionate term used by home brewers to describe a mishmash of equipment that is not pretty, but gets the job done.
But the president of Sabco, Bob Sulier, believes the number of high-end brewers is growing. In the past, the company’s Brew Magic system — their $6,000 flagship — was sold primarily to professional brewers, he said, but now many are being bought by home brewers or home-brew groups. In 2010, the company sold about one Brew Magic system a day, he added.
"We cater to the higher end of the group, the advanced home brewers,” Mr. Sulier said. “For many, this is the next logical step. They are willing to drop a dollar."
For many, the hobby began in college. Some wanted to drink well for less money and others were inspired by “starter” products like Mr. Beer kits, plastic barrels costing about $40 that have pre-measured ingredients and simple instructions and yield about two gallons of beer.
But like many pastimes, home brewing can grow addictive — and become more expensive.
Kal Wallner, a 41-year-old electrical engineer from Ottawa, said he spent about $5,000 on an all-electric brewery (most are gas-fed) that he installed in a basement room underneath his front porch steps. His goal was ambitious: a system that, “when you walked in, people would immediately think of a real brewery.”
Currently, Mr. Wallner’s brewery is in storage waiting for a move to the family’s new home. When he moves there next month, he will have more space for his brewery and plans to install floor drains, completely tile the room and add some new equipment.
“It is a lot of work,” he said, “but worth it.”
Bryan Rabe, a 31-year-old municipal worker from Albertville, Minn., agrees. Mr. Rabe, who is married and has a year-old daughter, installed a 20-gallon system in a small basement room that once held his heating and air-conditioning system and water heater. He designed the system, just 36 inches wide, to fit into this challengingly small space much of it is automated and is run from a panel that resembles a microwave and is built into the wall.
Mr. Rabe, who tends to favor light American lagers and some German lagers, stores his finished product in a refrigerated room next to the brewery that cooling room feeds directly to four taps in the wall of his basement bar. The brewery is just one of many caverns in his man cave, which also includes a game room, a home theater and a wet bar.
“You can go downstairs, and you can pretty much stay there,” Mr. Rabe said. “Only thing it doesn’t have is a bed.”
Sometimes, even a basement bar is not enough for a home brewer. Christopher Bowen built a pub to go along with his 10-gallon brewery, both in an 800-square-foot shed on waterfront property in Bethlehem, Pa., that also holds a cottage he owns with his sister and a friend. Mr. Bowen, a 44-year-old financial planner and father of three, calls the shed the HammerSmith Brewery and Alehouse. Inside it resembles a British pub, complete with 24 lidded 20-ounce beer steins reserved for regular visitors.
Mr. Bowen, who favors making ales and long-forgotten beers, first ventured into home brewing seven years ago, when he stopped into a local supply shop to get a birthday present for a friend and left with $300 of brewing equipment for himself.
Soon, he was entering competitions and in 2007 won a gold medal at the 30-year-old Great American Beer Festival, the nation’s largest beer gathering, held annually in Denver. Most Saturday mornings, he can be found brewing in the shed he also plays the role of a brewer in local historical reenactments and is popular on the home-brewing lecture circuit.
The competition Mr. Bowen won is just one of the hundreds of competitions worldwide each year. Even professional breweries give home brews a shot at stardom. In the annual Longshot contest held by the Boston Beer Company, makers of Samuel Adams beers, home brewers send in recipes the two winners have their beers brewed, bottled (with their likenesses on the label) and distributed to a national audience.
Mr. Bowen’s home pub has televisions, comfortable seating, a dartboard and a cellar filled with whiskey and wine barrels used for aging beer. Everything a beer lover needs — almost.
“We just don’t have a bathroom,” Mr. Bowen said. “But we are in pretty secluded area, or the cottage is just 20 steps away if needed.”
Cloning A Favorite
HERE is a neat party trick some home brewers play. They offer their friends, say, a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and see if they catch on that it came not from a bottle but from a home recipe.
Such beers are known as clone brews, and there are books, Web sites and online forums dedicated to the art of deconstructing the commercially sold beers they mimic. Following recipes that are often provided by breweries themselves, interested brewers can whip up favorites like Samuel Adams Boston Lager or New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale.
“Commercial beers serve as a common language,” said Randy Mosher, a Chicago-based beer consultant and author of “Radical Brewing: Recipes, Tales and World-Altering Meditations in a Glass.” “It’s a place where home brewers can understand taste familiarity.”
To learn how to brew your favorite commercial beer, like Guinness, Bass Ale and Chimay Red, pick up a copy of “Clone Brews: Homebrew Recipes for 150 Commercial Beers,” by Tess and Mark Szamatulski, a husband and wife who own a home-brewing supply shop in Connecticut. Also, Web sites like HomeBrewTalk.com and tastybrew.com offer user-submitted recipes for commercial as well as original beers in their forum sections.
In formulating clone beers, which can be made with even a rudimentary brewing system like the $40 Mr. Beer kit, the home brewer will see, taste and smell each ingredient individually. “The goal should be to tear apart the beer you are drinking to understand it,” Mr. Mosher said.
Once home brewers have successfully mimicked a recipe, they can begin a process that Mr. Mosher calls “wandering in the wilderness” — inventing his own recipes.
“I see brewing as an art form,” Mr. Mosher said. “You can sit in a museum and copy paintings, but eventually you want to find your own voice.”
Homebrewers double down on pandemic beer
COVID-19 IN COLORADO
The latest from the coronavirus outbreak in Colorado:
- LIVE BLOG: The latest on closures, restrictions and other major updates.
- MAP: Cases and deaths in Colorado. : Here’s where to find a community testing site. The state is now encouraging anyone with symptoms to get tested. : Get up-to-date information.
And that’s exactly what the Rock Hoppers Brew Club in Douglas County did when the pandemic hit. A handful of the club’s members have brewed five times or more since March.
“The general feeling is people are brewing because it means less trips out to the (beer) store,” said Eric Gould, the club president. “Maybe they are not drinking more, but they are drinking more homebrew.”
Gould, an award-winning homebrewer from Centennial who is looking to become a professional, said the five batches he’s made in two months is double his normal rate. Like him, the club members “have the time on their hands and they’ve got the stuff, so why not make it?”
The club moved its meetings to Zoom and hosted a day-long video call as members made beer for the AHA’s Big Brew Day on May 2. The drawback is the club members can’t get together to sample each other’s creations and offer feedback.
The beer Gould made as part of the national homebrew day is a double chocolate oatmeal porter — made only with ingredients he had at home left over from past recipes.
“It’s a pandemic beer,” he said.
