Brews for Shop Merchantville

Come out to our first ever Happy Hour Fundraiser to benefit the Merchantville Business and Professional Association (aka Shop Merchantville). Eclipse Brewing has generously offered to donate a portion of the proceeds from every beer purchased on Monday, May 16 back to our Local Group. What is MBPA/Shop Merchantville? We are your local Downtown Shop and Business Owners that volunteer our time and energy. We are raising funds to improve your Downtown Merchantville experience – from free events, to cleaning and landscaping, as well as marketing our wonderful downtown. Many of our town events are organized, run and advertised by our hard working Business Owners (Art Walk, Mystical May, Toy Fair…). We want to support these small business owners as best we can! Eclipse has opened its doors and taps to us, so be sure to stop by and SHOP MERCHANTVILLE! 

Happy Birthday, Eclipse Brewing!

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. Follow Eclipse on Instagram.

Fresh Produce Exchanges

Eclipse Brewing is open weekdays 4:00-9:00 p.m. and weekends 12:00-8:00 p.m. Making fresh home-grown food accessible to address community food security is one of 15 small action projects that the IE group has initiated in town since 2018, including bi-weekly donations to the Dolores Clark Food Pantry at Grace Church. Stop by these exchanges, take what you need, and if you grew too much, feel free to bring your donations!

No experience necessary, class is for all levels. 21+ only, just bring a Yoga Mat and water bottle. Do I have to drink beer? We know, it’s called Pilates & Pours.

But whether you have a drink after class or not, we hope you’ll stay and hang out.  

Learn to Brew in March

Come spend three hours at Eclipse Brewing on a Saturday morning and watch how beer is made on our one and a half barrel system.

Class takes place on Saturday, March 7th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. To register please click "Going" on our event page. We like to keep the group small between 9-10 people because our space is small.
