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 the Grand Opening point was, but it was received with much enthusiasm. Brick Farm Tavern guests had brunch at the Tavern while sampling Troon’s fine ales and porter. Troon Brewing’s brewer, Alex, provided tours of the brewery while filling growlers of his excellent ales. I spoke to one gentleman who had travelled up from Atlantic City, but most visitors were locals from Somerset, Mercer, Hunterdon, and Middlesex counties. Bhavana and I filled two growlers; one with an American Pale Wheat Ale entitled Dog-Earned Novel and the other Take Off Your Skin And Dance In Your Bones.
Name: Troon Brewing Co.
Location: Hopewell Township, Mercer County, New Jersey
Recommended Beer: Everything
Notes: Troon Brewing Co. does not sell any beer for on-site consumption and has no taproom. They sell beer to go in pre-filled, 32oz crowler cans.
I am not certain, but I think the man in the photo below 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 she may be someone close to the family.
