That’s a paddlin’

Not quite sure what you’re after? Spoilt for choice? Why not go for the $15.90 paddle!

A paddle gets you three tasters of any beer on tap or hand pump so you can treat yourself to that sour, stout and a style in between, or treat yourself to 3 of your favourite style. If you’re overwhelmed by choice, have a chat to our friendly bar staff – they’ll happy help you out!

Sydney’s original Craft Beer Fight Club event

We love craft beer so much, we have a great brewer event dedicated to it!
Check out our Entertainment page for more info on featured events and activities at the Dove & Olive.

The Dove & Olive is home to Sydney’s original Craft Beer Fight Club and we’ve seen many fine craft brews square up.

The gist? Two brewers go head to head and present us with their finest beers with the winner decided by public vote. The winner get a dedicated tap for the month, but more importantly, bragging rights. Along the way there are awesome giveaways, fun and games, plus a whole lot of beery banter.
If you can get to Surry Hills and you love craft beer, be sure not to miss it!

Each ticket includes 4 beers and the chance to vote for your favourite beer on the night. Heavyweight tickets get you 4 schooners, Lightweight tickets will get you 4 middies.

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.


Have a gathering at home? We have a bottle shop with a great range of beers and wine.

Heading home after Happy Hour, maybe just stocking up for a weekend, we have something for any occasion. Being the home of craft beer, needless to say we have a great range of craft beer tinnies too. Why not set yourself up with a mixed 6 pack!.
