"Some venues are facing the prospect of never opening their doors again if they don't get cash flow. It is an unprecedented challenge, not even during the world wars or the Depression did the pubs close.
"But we know Australians want pubs and clubs to keep their place at the heart of many local communities once this crisis is over. So if you love your local, or just want to help save the great Aussie tradition of going to the pub, buy a pint of beer in their hour of need."
For the Love of Your Local is running across the country. You buy a pint using PayPal to ensure venues get the money quickly and, when doors re-open, you'll be emailed a voucher to exchange for two pints.
CUB has offered to donate up to $1 million worth of kegs to venues but this could increase if required.
How it works
You need to elect your local pub and the voucher is redeemable at that venue. Or you can shout a mate and then they choose their local hotel. The pubs listed are in most states. You can see if your local is listed here.
You pay either $10 or $12 depending on the region. You order here.
