You Are a Citizen of the Republic of Cascadia
…And this is your beer.
Oh you didn’t know?
Seattle is part of the Republic of Cascadia, a nation formed from Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.
Its major export: beer.
Its leading rival: The greater San Diego area, I think.
Its signature beer: Cascadian dark ale, aka black IPA, aka American-style black ale. But if you’re an ROC national, you call it Cascadian dark ale.
I recently interviewed an Oregon brewer who is an authority on the matter, you can read that here.
And you really ought to try the beer, it’s mighty tasty.
