5 to Try: Local beer
Nothing beats relaxing with a cold beer on a hot afternoon. So why not treat yourself to a locally brewed beer? Domestic beers and those popular ones on commercials aren't the only choices. Nashville is home to breweries, too, so the beer doesn't lose any flavor and still tastes fresh.
