Sydney’s original Craft Beer Fight Club event

The Dove & Olive is home to Sydney’s original Craft Beer Fight Club. Brewers present their finest beers with the winner decided by public vote. The winner takes it all; a permanent tap as Beer of the Month, The Golden Growler Award and more importantly, bragging rights. Along the way there are awesome giveaways, a bawdy beer label design competition and a whole lot of beery banter.

Each ticket includes 4 beers and the chance to vote for your favourite beer on the night. A Heavyweight ticket buys you 4 schooners or if you prefer middies you can opt for the Featherweight ticket.*

Since the first showdown in March 2013 with Stone & Wood vs Murray’s Craft Beer Fight Club has grown to become Sydney’s ultimate craft beer event.

​In 2017 there will be 4 rounds culminating in a Grand Finale to be held during Sydney Craft Beer Week. The Grand Final will feature the 4  winning brewers of their respective rounds giving you the chance to sample the best brews of the year and cast your vote for the nation’s best brewer.

Beer, pub food, function venue and more in the heart of Sydney
