How to "checkout" a Git Tag?

You can checkout a tag in git by using the following command:

git checkout tags/<tag-name> -b <new-local-branch>

If you exclude the -b flag, a new local branch will not be created, and you end up in a detached HEAD state.

You can list all tags by using the git tag command to see which tags are available.
