T. Cook's at the Royal Palms Resort invited guests to an Alaskan Beer pairing dinner last night, in what it hopes will be the first in a series of beer pairings to run throughout the fall and winter. The evening featured a variety of Alaskan Brewing Company beers and showcased Skuna Bay's Vancouver Island craft raised salmon - yeah, craft salmon.

The lush (particularly for being in the middle of the desert) grounds surrounding the Royal Palms and T. Cook's provided a romantic background for the intimate dinner experience. Several tables of diners inside the restaurant enjoyed an evening of brews and summer-themed cuisine from T. Cook's Executive Chef Lee Hillson.
