Bluewood Brewing is a true gem on Cherokee Street: It boasts sky-high ceilings, a statement piece chandelier, tacos from B. McArthur’s Neighborhood Taco Shack and some spectacular brews and meads. Plus, its fully covered patio perfectly captures the spirit of the building’s original historic purpose – the Lemp stables – with red brick interiors and a wrought iron gate that opens up to the street on warm, sunny days.
