I'm not sure that it's the owner on Modern Times who is charged.

On the west coast, Modern Times president and chief operating officer Chris Sarette penned a blog post detailing the company’s plans for employee resource groups and anti-racism and anti-oppression training for staff. Several posts shared with Allan detailed a hostile work environment at the San Diego craft brewery, particularly for employees of color.

Modern Times confirmed that it terminated Derek Freese, its “League Coordinator.” Freese’s Linkedin profile says he worked for the company for eight years as “Party Lord.”

A post from the Oakland Modern Times staff said they would “not be pouring beer … until we feel that company leadership acts in a way that aligns with our personal values of inclusion and equality, and that appropriate actions and measures are put in place to prevent further discrimiantion and harassment.”


Article from 2017:

As a result, Modern Times is selling this year.

The brewery’s employees will be the new owners.

The brewery announced Friday that it is entering an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) and has given employees a 30% stake in the company. That share will eventually be increased to 100%, with Ventura ESOP Fiduciary Services acting as an independent trustee. This isn’t exactly a new concept, as larger craft brewers, including Deschutes of Bend, Ore.; New Belgium of Fort Collins, Colo.; and Harpoon Brewing of Boston, are already employee-owned in various degrees. Smaller breweries like Left Hand in Longmont, Colo., have also embraced employee ownership by paying off investors through loans or other financing.

Well space, their message directly posted on their IG page says their founder and ceo has stepped down, so my apologies if they're not considered the owner.

Sorry, you are right. The founder and CEO (though he may no longer be the owner) *is* stepping down.

It also seems that maybe (but maybe not) he himself is not the one doing the harassing? But is stepping down because as the CEO, such things shouldn't be going on under his watch?

I don't really care enough to play detective, but I wonder which owners were the ones directly harassing women or doing/saying misogynistic (or racist) things, which ones didn't personally do it but turned a blind eye to it happening, and which ones were simply blind and it happened without their knowledge..

after only one month: “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump"

A Trump adviser told The Washington Post that the former president shut down his blog because he didn’t like that this platform was being mocked and had so few readers

now that the blog is dead, he'll have no readers --> belongs in the good news thread?
