Blue Sky Brewery
Hearty meals for hungry folks here include seafood, pasta, steak, burgers and salads. Plus, naturally, you’ll find foods cooked in beer, from mussels sautéed in Woody ale to True Blue Stout beer sorbets. The brewery opened in late 2008 to much cheering because Cairns hadn’t had a local drop to boast about for a long time. There has been quite a bit of distilling going on in the Cairns highlands in recent times, and you can also purchase locally distilled spirits and liqueurs here. Menus advise the best types of beer or wine to match with particular food.
