An article from the Washington Post on Cascadian Dark Ales – they are a little behind the scene, but better late than never. Rogue Ales was there first…
A Revolution is Brewing.
“As with most emerging styles, there is a debate over who got there first. ”The question is a sticky one,” allows Abram Goldman-Armstrong, a beer writer from Portland who organized a Cascadian dark ale symposium in January to help draw up parameters for the style. Goldman-Armstrong asserts that the “first true CDA” he ever sampled was Skull Splitter from Rogue Ales in Newport, Ore., a special release for the 2003 Oregon Brewers Festival. He credits a home-brewing friend, Bill Wood of Seattle, with coining the term Cascadian dark ale.”
