I am from the German Club Cairns , we have the Pilsner on tap and are loving it.
It has a beautiful taste and is very refreshing.
A must have at our place.

Leaning on the bar at Cairns airport last Friday evening, tried my first (then second, by no means last) Blue Sky Pilsner: Awesome.
Live in Sydney, where can I get it? Luckily will be back in Cairns in a couple of weeks... Definitely will visit the brewery!!

I am one of the founding partners of Blue Sky Brewery and would like to announce that we have proudly won 9 International Beer Awards for all of our beers on tap. There were over 1141 beers entered from 39 countries and Blue Sky Brewery snagged 9 of the prestigeous awards for the city of Cairns. Hayden Mokaraka says he was very proud of the acheivement and was very pleased to be bringing medals back to Cairns.

I was fascinated by the set up at Sky Brewery. I am not a beer drinker - however enjoyed the light pilsener. The staff were courteous and prompt with our order. The level of noise needs to be reduced. I would like to see an area containing more suitable seating (couches) for older citizens. I would also like to see a lift for those of us who find climbing stairs difficult. I have no further complaints - only praise for our new Cairns Brewery and those responsible for its birth.
