Counter Covid
We saved Melbourne’s pubs and, no, we’re not heroes.

The moment pubs were forced to close in 2020, BAM used our powers for good. We created Counter Covid, an online directory of Melbourne’s best pubs serving takeaway throughout the crisis.

At, anyone who ordered a takeaway counter meal not only helped their local stay afloat, but also copped a free tinny thanks to Moon Dog, who dropped everything and jumped on board.

And once it made the 6 o’clock news, cue the frenzy. Orders were flat-out and punters were having their pub meals at home where they temporarily belonged.
