Happy to have brewed the winning recipe in the heart of Cascadia here in Portland, Oregon. This is my favorite beer style and hope it turns out good on the 15bbl system.

I didn't really think I liked CDA's until I started trying them at different breweries so I could learn what they taste like and make my own for this competition. Now I love them and order one whenever I see it on tap. I know I advanced to the best of show and got a score of 41 but haven't got my scoresheet back yet. I'm curious what the judges have to say so I can adjust my recipe on their advice. Congrats on the win!

Mine didn't fair so well, but like you, I've grown into a fan of this style and want to help push for Cascadian Dark Ale to become a bjcp recognized category.
Calling it a black or dark ipa is silly and also creates confusion especially amongst the commercial guys I've noticed. So many brewers are just hopping up a stout or porter, or they're just adding some dark malts to an ipa for color, both resulting in a weak representation of the style.

I know that its being distributed locally after being brewed? Or just at Buckman?

Im curious to try out the winning recipe, but no real information on when its being brewed or where its going to be served came out...

I'm not too sure either, but I know I will be participating in the brew at Buckman on May 16th and the planned release date is June 10th. I will post updates here when I know more about if it will be draft only, or bottles, or what.

BTW, I'm checking out your fermentation monitor. Really cool, I might make one, need to get some soldering supplies and skills first though.

I am more and more convinced that they are different styles. CDAs tend to have a more pronounced malt backbone and roastiness, whereas Black IPAs/American Dark Ales are basically... black IPAs - same recipe as an IPA with a dehusked roasted malt added.

Well people need to at least stop calling something black/dark and pale at the same time.
