Thank you to everyone for joining us at another great Father’s Day Brunch! We had so much fun celebrating with all of you and can’t wait to see you next year.  Dine with us again in June of 2018 for our next Father’s Day Brunch Celebration.

Follow our “What’s Happening” page online and social media for year-round events and activities for you to enjoy!

Thank you to everyone that joined us at our 1st annual Beer Dinner on June 16th, 2017! We had a great time sharing this event with all of our guests. Please enjoy some words about the event from Sarah Markiewicz, Duo Public Relations for Alderbrook Resort & Spa.

“To start the meal off, Chef Joshua Delgado shared about his inspiration behind the menu. The menu was heavily inspired by “staples” that we so often eat, especially as kids. Being Father’s Day weekend, Chef Josh decided to highlight some of the fun foods that we ate as children with our dads – but in an escalated way. Pulling inspiration from simple staple dishes like eggs and bacon, peanut butter and jelly, or hot dog with fries, Chef Josh was able to take guests on a journey through their taste buds back to that carefree time in our lives. Chef Josh did a great job in preparing the menu and all of the dishes were beautifully served with the escalated taste, presentation and array of ingredients in them.

The representative from FishTale Brewery also provided insight into how he chose each beer that he decided to pair with the individual dishes, while describing tasting notes, answering lots of questions and sharing his personal experience in the brewing industry.”

MENU:

“bacon & eggs”
house cured tempura porkbelly / maple kombucha pickled farm egg
paired with: Summer Full Blast Ale

“fish & chips”
herb marinated northwest halibut / pretzel spätzle / warm tartar sauce
paired with: Private Label Battlebrook Saison

“chicken & waffles”
chicken confit / washington amaretto cherry waffles / cherry gastrique
paired with: Fish Tale Organic Porter

“hot dog & fries”
northwest wagyu sausage & foie gras / brioche bun / pickled fries
paired with: Hodgsons Bitter End IPA

“peanut butter & jelly”
compressed berries / summer hill farms hazelnut butter / house made “wonder” bread
paired with: Spire Blackberry Pear Cider

Savor the year-round bounty of Hood Canal at our monthly Canal Cookouts. Chat with our Executive Chef, Joshua Delgado, while he prepares and serves you the freshest local ingredients refined with culinary technique.

Canal Cookouts are offered the 3rd Thursday of every month at our off-site location, the Union City Market with the exception of January and December. In the winter, they are held inside our historic marina and in the summer, they are held outdoors on the marina’s patio. Attired is canal-side casual.

Tickets can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets or by calling the Market at 360.898.3500. Cost is $45 per person and includes bites and drinks. Canal Cookouts are 21+ events. Multiple ticket discounts are available. Complimentary transportation to and from the resort is available to hotel guests.

Throughout my fifteen years in the meeting and event industry I have seen many trends come and go, but one thing remains constant, and that is the desire for a return on the investment.  Companies that are willing to invest in their people, in the form of retreats and offsite events, need to know they are spending their money wisely.  Likewise, families planning weddings and celebratory events want to impress friends and family, and ensure a good value while doing so.

I view event management as a partnership working together to ensure the value is high, and that they see a return on their investment, not only of money, but also time.  At Alderbrook, my goal when working with event planners is to combine a magical space, excellent service, a fantastic culinary experience, and unique activities, to help them achieve their goals.  If the attendees have a truly memorable experience while they are here, they are more likely to bring that back to the office with them and execute on what they learned in the meeting room.   If a wedding attendee is impressed, they are likely to talk about that event for years, which makes the bride and groom beam with pride, and helps us book more events through word of mouth.

A foraging walk with the chef to learn about local mushrooms, or a painting class with a local artist go a long way to helping build these memories.  Shucking your first raw oyster freshly harvested from our beach is something many guests never forget.  A cruise aboard Lady Alderbrook under the shadow of the Olympic Mountains is an amazing way to see the area, and one your guests are likely to remember.  Team building while geocaching on our private trail system is a wonderful way to get the team to bond.  We have many interesting and authentic ways to build an event that will maximize the attendees experience and in turn, the return on the investment for the planner.

Each event is unique, and each client has a specific set of needs, and goals.  Listening to what those are, and partnering with them to create an experience that helps achieve those goals will go far in building your business.  It also makes your job more fun when you take this approach!  Don’t just book events, create memories and lifelong clients.
