Dove & Olive provides an unparalleled pub experience. Our exceptional range of beer on tap, as well as our delicious menu, makes us the ‘go to’ destination for a great night out.  With 25+dedicated taps and traditional hand pumps, we are the leading craft beer venue in Surry Hills.

“It’s a pub for all tastes, all seasons and all people. And that’s why we love it”. – Time Out

“An unpretentious and well-dressed boozer offering quality across the board…the Dove & Olive is one Surry Hills local you should take the time to get to know.” – The Crafty Pint

Remember the Beer Paddles

If our craft beer choice is simply to overwhelming, why not go for the $10 paddle, volume wise its just shy of a schooner and at $10 its great value.

You can even tell the bar staff what you’d like and they’ll give you a selection to match your taste. Or why not be bold and use the paddle to stretch your taste buds and try something you would not normally venture a whole schooner on.

What about a “sour” or maybe a “stout”? Remember Craft now pushes beer flavours to beyond the traditional, maybe its time to push yourself too!

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 2018 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.
