I would go with the style you're most interested in brewing.

What could be more arrogant, shallow and pedantic than the North westerners trying to claim this beer style as their own when they didn't even create it!!Yes, we all get together monthly and plot how we can name a beer after one of our mountain ranges (that runs from Canada to California). Muahahahahahahah
Say no more! It is not yet time!
That's what I'm calling this "style" from now on.
I refuse to call it Cascadian because it probably originated with the late great Greg Noonan in Vermont.
I don't like calling it Black Pale Ale because that's stupid.
I find the better examples pretty good in that they look darker than they taste, giving it an interesting juxtaposition. More refreshing than a stout or a porter with just the tiniest bit of roast. The ones I don't care for are the overly roasty ones. The flavors just don't seem pleasant to me.
Yes, I too think it's a fad. Last year it was IIPA, a couple of years ago everybody was making Saisons. Before that it was wood-aged beers. When will it be Ordinary Bitter?
I ran an exam last Nov. We maxed out at the 20 person limit. But on the day of the exam, 6 of them didn't show up, even though they'd paid the full fee in advance (I made everybody do that to be sure they'd show up). Very frustrating since I also had a waiting list of a dozen people.Hey Denny, where should one look for the best information regarding BJCP resources/events in Oregon? Thanks!
