Default My new favorite beer style

I've been homebrewing for about 4 months now trying my hand at various styles. I even joined a brew club that brews between 5-35 gallons every Sunday. One of the guys made a CDA of which I had never tried.

Only recently have I begun liking IPAs. I didn't even know what CDA stood for. His version was really nice. CDA stands for Cascadian Dark Ale. How cool is that. A beer style named after the area in which I live.

My next brew is going to be a version of CDA. I've even bought a few commercial examples to solidify my new favorite style.

Don't start this argument again, diaperload.
Search some of the threads that talk about CDA as the name of a style and you'll see that there are a lot of people who object to using CDA as the name instead of Black IPA or something less place-related.
Discussion begins below:

I totally realize that. I've read some of the old threads and have noticed that some use the name India Black Ale or some variant. I have no problem with this. Since I'm from this area I'll choose to call the style CDA.

I also happen to really love the style. I've only recently started liking IPAs.

Go have a Secession at HUB, briefly think about people who complain about the CDA name, forget that bs, walk next door and have a lap dance.

@mongrel; I just noticed you're from Black Butte. Could be another name for the "style". Black Butte IPA has a nice ring to it,imo. I say just call it whatever you want that references the style. That way,everyone's on the same page. Close enough for me...

ohh it is wayyyyyyy more than a beer style... There are some people that want to form a new country called Cascadia. I think these people are nuttier than a squirrel turd.

The last time we had this discussion,they were also arguing about getting the BJCP to recognize it as a style. But I'll take the lap dance!

Last time I was at HUB, I tried to order a Secession and the dude looked at me like I was crazy. "A what?" Apparently they don't have it anymore.

Laurelwood has a new one that's pretty good though.

Personally, I don't give a rat's patoot what they call it - I just know I like to drink it!

Here here! Just brewed one a few weeks ago. Can't wait to try it. It's my first recipe I've put together on my own, based on several I've researched. I can never remember the name Cascadia. Mine's called Fade to Black IPA
