Buy a pint to save your favourite Gold Coast pub

Buying beer for a good cause is one of the very best things you can do. Particularly when that good cause is keeping Queensland venues afloat during what is quite obviously, one of the most difficult times for businesses we’ve ever experienced.

Enter For the Love of Your Local, a campaign created by Carlton United Breweries and the Australian Hotels Association to help Queensland pubs and clubs survive right now.

As we all know, pubs and clubs are the heart of Australia. There’s nothing we love more than heading down to our local on a sunny Sunday afternoon (or any afternoon honestly), grabbing a few frosty beverages with our friends and shooting the breeze about how lucky we are to be alive. It’s a good time.

Well it was a good time and one we’re not able to enjoy right now, which means our pubs and clubs are suffering.

So, there’s only one thing to do. Buy beer anyway.

All you need to do is head to the website, nominate your participating local venue and buy a pint of Great Northern Super Crisp. The cash goes to the venue immediately and Carlton United Breweries will then match your support, pint for pint when the venue reopens.

You purchase using PayPal and once the venue swings open their doors again, you’ll be mailed a voucher to exchange for TWO pints. Plus, you can buy more pints because you’ll be right back there in your venue with your pals again.

Bring that on.

For the Love of Your Local is running everywhere, so it’s likely your favourite spot is involved. Here’s just a few that are featured all across the Coast… Ashmore Tavern, Emerald Lakes Golf Club, Fisherman’s Wharf Tavern, Labrador AFL Sports Club, Southport Australian Football Club, The Sporting Globe Robina, The Avenue Surfers Paradise.

You don’t even need to stop at one pint, this is the one time in your life when you can purchase as many as you like without getting into trouble.

The perfect plan.

So if you’ve been wondering how to help the businesses you love so much, there you have it.

Pints for everyone.

Loving all this community spirit, let’s keep it up always. Buy your pints here.
