Time to check something good out of the (Beer) Library


Situated on Colombo St, along side Sydenham hot spot The Colombo, The Beer Library is Christchurch’s only craft beer bottle store. A relaxed atmosphere, an outstanding selection, and knowledgeable staff providing excellent service ensure that this is the perfect place for everyone to find their perfect beer, from the biggest ‘hop-heads’ to craft beer novices.

The first thing you'll notice when walking in to The Beer Library is the wall of chillers that ensurethe stock stays as fresh as the day it left the brewery. With well over 300 different bottles and five constantly rotating taps for rigger fills, The Beer Library curates the largest selection of craft beer available in the South Island. The Beer Library stocks beers from local Christchurch breweries, further afield in New Zealand, and hard to find beers from around the globe. You’re sure to find something you’ve never had!

Beer-LibraryAs if the selection alone wasn’t enough, The Beer Library regularly holds craft beer events such as tastings, pairings, brewer talks, and beer schools. No trip to Christchurch is complete without visiting this temple to all things craft beer. Just tell your partner you’re heading down to “the library”.
