Porter was initially imported to the American colonies, but by the 1700s it was being commercially  brewed, especially in New England and Pennsylvania. Because of high costs of importing barley,  adjuncts were often employed including sugar, molasses, corn and licorice As a result, American  porter differentiated from the English and Irish versions.
