Situated in southeastern Tennessee along Chickamauga and Nickajack lakes is Chattanooga, home to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga as well as many performing arts and entertainment venues. The Tennessee River flows through the city, and the Tennessee Aquarium is one of the biggest attractions in the entire Southeast. Eight microbreweries now operate in the community, including Terminal Brewhouse with choices like Magnum PA and our pick, Southsidenstein Stout.
