I was there for the grand opening in 2006 and all the anniversary celebrations since then. I hope to celebrate with Alex, Tom, and Sean for as long as Troon keeps making beer. Congratulation on six years of the best beer-making in the state. Thank you.
Typically the Brick Farm Tavern hosts a ticketed event with a Troon-only beer fest (with food) at the bar or under the tent. Troon usually releases exceptional bottled barrel-aged stouts and variants of previous ales for their anniversary celebration. This year was a little different. This year's anniversary release was a hazy IPA, and our festivities were limited to the grass outside the dog-run bar.
The air was still full of excitement. Some early Troon "Jabronis" occupied a table near the fire pits, chatting, catching up, and wishing each other happy holidays. I love this little community. Happy New Year, my jabronis.
This is the part of the year when the air is damp and cold and the skies are cloudy all-day. There is minimal colour in the dimly lit surrounds. Why bother making colour photographs? I have decided to photograph in black and white for as long as the winter weather lasts. How long will that be?
