The Craft Beef Library is situated on the corner of 6th Street and 3rd Avenue in Linden. As the name suggests, the restaurant offers a large selection of craft beer and local craft ciders.

The owners of the trendy eatery are avid beer lovers and decided to create an exciting and unique environment to enjoy good craft beer with great food. We believe the craft trend is here to stay and that creative brewers will continue to spring up all over the country, creating wonderful brews to be enjoyed by discerning beer drinkers.


The Craft Beer Library is where the Craft Brewery's "story" can be heard, beer labels read and where the uniqueness of each brew can be savoured. CBL is the purveyor of South African craft beer and ciders, not the conventional liquor outlet or watering hole, but an over the counter experience of note, with "an off the fridge shelf or fresh from the keg" supply.

The vision is a beer boutique experience, coupled with a unique pairing of great, local and easy foods. The restaurant’s mission is to take freshly crafted brews directly to the end user, open the bottle, or crank the tap for instant gratification.


CBL has a reasonably small menu but the delicious options are perfect for pairing with their craft beers and ciders. Their “Spicy Tail” Deconstructed Jalapeño Poppers are a sure winner on their Snack Menu and the “Hogshead” Pulled Pork Buns with crunchy coleslaw and hand-cut chips or the “Merino Monster” Deboned Lamb served on a pita with tzatziki, hummus and hand-cut chips sound like delicious Mains.

"Where friends meet over good craft beer and good food"
