This place is right off of Rutgers' campus, so expect the college student crowd. The decor is stereotypical brewpub bricks with brewery equipment in full display, but it's very clean. The food is standard pub grub (think TGIF's), but it's cheap. I wasn't impressed by the hired help's knowledge of beer either, but at least they were courteous. The only beers worthy of mention were the Full Moon Pale Ale (B+), McCord's Scotch Lager (B+), and O'Leary's Irish Stout (A-). I have a tough time believing that this place would still be in business if it wasn't in such a slam dunk location.

Very good food. Very good beer. The Simcoe Double IPA, outstanding. Not quit Maharaja, but well on the road there. Come here! The afternoon delight is a relatively mild IPA, but very nice. The American Joe Schwarzbier is really good. A lager yeast, but not at all thin.

My second time here and the first time I review this place. About the only thing I remember from the Harvest is how delicious their DIPA is! Lucky me they had it on tap during my second visit...
It is a cool-looking place, with tanks right by entrance and brick and wood aplenty. A zig-zagging copper bar and a cozy, quiet ambience on a lazy Sunday night.
Unfortunately there was a tapping going on for a local theater group and most of the joint was taken. This also affected service.
I was tempted by the barrel-aged beers but was one week too early for the release. Eight house beers on tap, including the Cluster DIPA (had, damn good!) and The Dark Side of the Moon (Black IPA, a tad too hoppy perhaps but good which are the beers my wife and I used.
Of the food menu, we had a correct miso soup and a rather nice and filling veggie chili.
Service was crappy from a kind-of clueless bartender, but it is true he was busy with the filming crew.
I would come back, but not on purpose and without great expectations.

A college bar. Satisfactory bar, basic service. Beer is passable. Loud, boisterous crowd, swearing, about sports. Loud TVs. Flight decks. Would be willing to try their barrel aged beers. Maybe quieter late afternoon. Prices are reasonable, and after all it is New jersey. Parking easy to find.

Harvest Moon has been a staple in New Brunswick for a good while. It had been a long time since I had left Rutgers until the other day.
Harvest Moon hasn't changed all too much and the set up is still exactly the same as when I had been here years ago. It's a real good atmosphere that belies it's being in a college town. It's a very laid back atmosphere with a nice bar area.
The quality of the brews is still pretty good. They aren't amazing, but on the whole pretty good. The service was usually on point and it was never too much of a problem to get a beer or some food.
The selection is mostly focused on their brews as would be expected. They aren't that deep in other brews but have a good amount of whiskey and some wine selections as well.
The food is also very solid. The fries were on the smaller side, but the wrap that I got was very good.
Harvest Moon was enjoyable to stop in and remember all the times I had come here when I was in college. It is certainly different from a lot of other rutgers bars, which is not a bad thing at all

They always seem to have a decent selection of beer to cater to everyone's taste buds. They do brew imperial beers which is nice. I like it when the brewer gets creative. Recently they had a Bourbon Barrel aged Barley Wine. I was pretty impressed to see the Moon jumping on the barrel aging wagon. I would like to see more of that. Perhaps a bourbon barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout for the winter time?
The food is pretty good and the menu has a decent selection. The staff are all really nice people.
