Dog-Eared Novel

Posted on Tuesday, 13th December 2016 1:11 PM EST

Full-length comic books (often referred to as graphic novels) may count as novels. According to the definitions, I found online a novel is a “fictitious prose narrative of book length, typically representing character and action with some degree of realism.” Fictitious prose. Full-length comic books … I mean graphic novels, are stories of superhuman (aka meta-human) beings or aliens from earth or other planets. The most famous of these beings is a person born on a dying planet who becomes earth mightiest hero.

Character and action. That being from another planet, first appeared in the American comic book series, Action Comics on April 18, 1938. The character gained super strength when exposed to Earth’s solar radiation. He could leap tall buildings in a single bound, run faster than a speeding bullet, and is more powerful than a locomotive.

As a boy, I would read his adventures over and over and over again. I am such a geek.

Troon Brewing's new Pale Wheat Ale, named Dog-Eared Novel, is "comforting and familiar, like your favorite book". Like, Superman.

  1. Troon Brewing had been open for a while when they announced their Grand Opening in collaboration with Brick Farm Tavern. I'm not sure what was the point of the Grand Opening but it was received with much enthusiasm. Brick Farm Tavern guests had brunch at the Tavern while sampling the fine ales and porter from Troon. Troon Brewing's brewer, Alex provided tours of the brewery while filling growlers of his excellent ales. Most of the guest were local -- Somerset, Mercer, Hunterdon, Middlesex counties -- although I spoke to one gentleman who had traveled up from Atlantic City. Bhavana and I filled two growlers; one with American Pale Wheat Ale, Dog-Earned Novel and the other with an American Pale Ale, Take Off Your Skin And Dance In Your Bones.Troon Brewing's brewer, Alex talking with some of the people on the tour.

    Troon Brewing is selling growlers for $4.

    You can also purchase a Troon Brewing hoodie.
    I am not certain this is Alex's Dad but I believe it is. Or maybe he's the owner of the Brick Farm Tavern. I don't know the name of the woman he's talking to but it must be someone close to the family.

    These images were shot at relatively high ISO. I used the sharpening technique I described in a previous article.
