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.

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.
