A smallish brewpub in Rutgerís territory with a fair selection of house beers. The service was fairly slow, but the food pretty good.

College bar. Young and hip is not my scene, or I may have enjoyed it more. The #300 Sour I had was enjoyable. It is not listed yet, and I donít have the specific Inc on it to list it.

Really nice brewpub in the middle of town. Very easy to find, parking very close. Service was great. The beer selection was also pretty good, with a couple rye-inspired offerings, a double IPA, porter, pale ale and a few others. The food was pretty average, though. My wife had a roast beef sandwich and I had a cheesesteak pizza. The beer quality was pretty good. Harvest Moon is definitely worth a stop if youíre in the area.

Been here several times but never rated the place...so I took a special trip this past Saturday night. Place has a nice vibe and great decor...college town bars always get a different rating then elsewhere...but I think you can say this place would hold up anywhere. The food is good (donít miss the French onion soup)...but at the end of the day...weíre here for the beer! Of course they make many styles...but I had to judge from the day I visited...unfortunately they had some lines freeze during the recent cold spell limiting them to only 3 beers. nonetheless...those 3 were very good to great. The Nut Brown Ale (not my style) was very enjoyable..the New Zealand Triple was extremely good...and the Full Moon Pale Ale was also very good. Based on the 2nd two beers alone Iíd say a visit here was worth the trip...but of course normally youíll get to try 5-8 beers...not just 3.

A decent pub in New Brunswick NJ near Rutgers University. They had around 8 or so taps. I tried an abbey single, irish stout, pale ale, and IPA which were all middle-of-the-road. Had a soup and salad which was ok. Overall decent beers, not a beer destination, but ok if youíre in the area.

This place is in an old and characterful building, with brewing equipment visible at the entrance. Lots of wood all around, and a beutiful copper top bar. Service is slow but friendly. Beers were so so. Parking is challenging, so try the garage around the corner, just follow the signs.

A college bar. Satisfactory bar, basic service. Beer is passable. Loud, boisterous crowd.

old two story bar with big old staircase and a moderate room upstairs. more room downstairs and essence of old beer and dive bar. this place makes very good beers that are full of body and flavor. they also make very good food. i recommend the fish taco, the fish and chips and the b.l.t as well as the burgers. pulled into a parking space right up front.

If you can manage to find parking here, good for you. Had to park about five blocks away, but managed it alright otherwise. Nice open feeling from the high ceilings, brewing equipment is off to the right as you walk in. Big open feeling due to minimal tables, but the seating around the copper topped bar was more than adequate on a slow Thursday afternoon. Flight here is 8 pours of about four ounces for maybe $10. On tap when I came were two berliner weisses (they did a batch and split it half and half doing half the kegs with some peach in them), a mild, red ale, schwarz, ipa, saison, and a kolsch. Nice variety of styles. Bartender here was great. Super friendly, happy to talk about New Brunswick and the beer scene here, as well as the stuff he liked to drink. I was still full from lunch so I didnít get food here and only checked out the specials on the board. But they looked promising. Seems like every day there is a soup, quesadilla, and pizza of the day. Day I was there featured Asian chicken and vegetable soup, Chorizo, black beans, grilled corn, scallion and pepper jack cheese quesadilla, and a pizza with portabello, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, mozzarella, and pesto.
