Lunch & Learn, October 31 - Port Angeles Red Lion

Sometimes, does it ever seem:

  • that there are not enough hours in the day?
  • the pantry is bare and seasonal staff are scarce?
  • there are just a few too many visitors!  

So, what’s next?

Perfect Pairing of Two Peninsula Personalities!

Bedford's MarionBerry Creme       Lake Crescent Lodge  Bedford's MarionBerry Creme A great tribute! Bedford's NW Soda was asked recently to create a new flavor for the 100th anniversary of the Lake Crescent Lodge, which is located on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in the Olympic National Park in Western Washington State. Marionberry Crème was created with the label commemorating the 100th anniversary of this beautiful historic lodge, which sets on the shore of magnificent Lake Crescent. Ed Bedford worked with lodge staff to create the flavor and the label. Lake Crescent Lodge was recently rated as one of the top lodges in the U.S. Park System. The product was introduced at the lodge’s May 1st 2015 opening. Many have already inquired if the Marionberry flavor will become a permanent addition, joining Bedford's fine soda line up? Stay tuned…
