Dove & Olive
The first rule of Craft Beer Fight Club is you do not talk about Craft Beer Fight Club.
This breezy, often boisterous Surry Hills establishment is another example of a previously overlooked drinking hole which has been revitalised around craft beer. It's a modern space with well-presented pub grub, but it's in their expertly curated beer offerings where the Dove & Olive really shines. Grab a beer paddle and select from a range of unusual tipples on tap.
If you're here for a nosh, the D&O also features four-course dinners where each stage of the meal is matched to a beer, while their Craft Beer Fight Club — where brewers 'fight to the death' for the chance to get their brew on tap for a month — is quickly becoming the stuff of legend. Plus, the trivia here is some Sydney's best and most boisterous.
