"Steamworks Brew Pub," eh?

Doesn't Anchor Brewing own the trademark to "steam" beers?

The idea of cascadia has been around since the 1800's and the actual term coined in 1970. So the beer is named after the place not a place named for beer

Well! Why didn't somebody say so?!?

The idea of crestwood has been around for longer than that. I am not about to name any of the styles I have made Crestwoodian because just MAYBE somebody else has replicated much the same beer somewhere else, and I am not a completely concieted douchebag of an asshat.

What like English brown ale, czech pils, and California common? Yeah real "douchebags and asshats". Lighten up.

If a style is from a country fine. If it is unanimous that a style came from a state, then also fine. When people all over the country claim to have made a certain style, and no one knows who was first, then to name it after the neighborhood where you happen to live is douchebaggery, plain and simple.

Ok. That makes sense. Being from a small island in western canada I guess I see a lot of cascadian dark ales and didnt reaally think it was prevalent elsewhere. I guess that is pretty small minded. Convinced.

I hope it doesn't surprise you though. Too many in this community view "craft" brewers as these honest and noble gods who are above the business practices of the "evil" corporate overlords InBev and MillerCoors. It's a fantasy world that we've created because the brewers might occasionally smile when you visit and ask for their recipe. The vast majority of them would do exactly what the corporations do (they're all corporations also...) to protect and grow their brands and most importantly, wallets.

funny that everyone is up in arms and yet the breweries directly involved seem to hold no ill-will
