Went in for dinner on a Thursday night. There is an upstairs with seating for dinner and a downstairs with the brew kettles, bar, and smaller tables. It got pretty crowded downstairs by the time we left. All the beer seemed fresh with a wide variety of selections with everything from a DIPA, oatmeal stout, belgian dark ale, and hefeweizen and more, probably about 10 selections in total. I thought the beer prices were a little high ($5-6) for a beer. Dinner for 4 came to just over $110, the appitizers were great and the main course wasn't bad Overall a great place n the Brunsiwck area

Located on Geroge Street, which is chock-full of bars and eateries, Harvest Moon is an attractive and pubby two-story venue that brews their own brews. Offering about six or seven beers of many styles. Unfortunatley they had no IPA available. Those they did have were fresh and tasty. Hearty food and efficient service make for a pleasant evening. Plenty of locals and students, since New Brunswick is home to Rutgers University.

Good venue in downtown New Brunswick. Lots of local parking nearby. Creatively used older building with a small bar area, and dining spread around multiple floors. We had seven beers on tap, with a taste them all sampler option. Some pretty good options, including the sour saison and the Kolsch. Good sized menu with variations for lunch and dinner. Service was prompt and friendly. Growlers to go available.

Overall: we were here a Mon. afternoon so we bellied up no problem. Place was clean, our bartender was attentive and knowledgeable about the beers (offered free small samples when we inquired about beers). As for the beers: witbier reminded me (fondly) of Avery White Rascal. Black IPA was good but stood in the shadow of my latest crush (dark penance by Founders). The nose on the sour reminded me of a resiling, decent flavor (passion fruit). My dude drank the Gose but it was too salty for my palate. We would stop in again if we were in the area but wouldn't drive there specifically for the pours or food.
