Eclipse Brewing will be 5 yrs old this Saturday, October 9th, so stop by, raise a glass, try a flight or buy a crowler or growler. Thanks to owners, Chris and Beth Mattern, Merchantville has a cozy neighborhood micro-brewery, 18 taps, different styles, something for everyone. One tap is for soda and the other 17 beers change week-to-week and can include light and dark beers, hoppy to honey, fruity to coconut beer. Their seasonal ales are delicious, Peach Sour is back on tap and they have really great root beer - bring your own ice cream for a fabulous float! Eclipse offers plenty of outside seating with picnic tables and chairs. One recent review sums it up - "Great beer, reasonable price, friendly staff, and a delightful atmosphere." Open 7 days a week. First come, first served. Located at 25 Park Avenue and open Monday-Wednesday 4-9 p.m., Thursday and Friday 4-10 p.m., Saturday noon to 10 p.m and Sunday noon to 8 p.m. Lots of parking available.

June is the month we celebrate Merchantville's birth in 1874! While current circumstances have caused states to ban public gatherings, such as parties and celebrations, let's toast the founding of our small but strong borough 146 years ago and, honor the efforts of the many public servants, volunteers and business owners who have helped to strengthen and sustain our community. As we start planning for the Borough's Sesquicentennial, Mayor Brennan and Council want you to know that they are committed to continuing their work on your behalf and moving initiatives forward that will promote progress and secure a vital and prosperous future for residents and businesses. Merchantville's history.
