Stone Brewing's frontman Greg Cock is continuing his campaign against Cascadian Dark Ales with an article yesterday written for CraftBeer.com and a video filmed during the GABF with Oregon's own gold medal winner for the CDA category, Shawn Kelso of Barley Browns. Greg is at his most reserved in the video, but he uses this chance to highlight his arguments for calling the style Black IPA and mentions by name some of Oregon's most vocal proponents for the CDA moniker. There is no doubt in my mind that we would not have a CDA, let alone a Black IPAfrom Stone or anyone else right now, if it were not for the Cascadia region of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Also, I am pretty sure Greg is remarkably reserved in this video because he was afraid of getting pummeled by the Barley Brewer. In the words of Alex Ganum, "I don't believe in CDA, I believe in SKA (Shawn Kelso ale)!"
