Show more metadata: Tags at bottom, category & date on top of post? (Brine)

Question

Hi, all - wondering if it's possible to display tags for a blog post in addition to/separately from other metadata (e.g. category, date), and elsewhere on the page.

Context:

I'm using the Brine template. Under "Site Styles," you can set "primary" and "secondary" metadata to display on any given post — and you can only display two metadata types.

By default, those two pieces of metadata display under the blog post title, as below (here, I'm displaying Categories and Date).

Question:

What I'm wondering is — is it possible to, in addition to the "Primary" and "Secondary" metadata you can set in Site Styles, display a third metadata type (e.g. tags), elsewhere on the page (e.g. at the bottom of the post)? 

I'd love to be able to have a display at the bottom of a post, near the previous/next links and social share buttons, that lists the post tags (e.g. Tagged under: Thing 1, Thing 2, Thing 3). 

Is it possible?

There isn't a built in option to do this but it is possible to do with JavaScript. Even if they aren't styled to appear in the metadata, the tags will still appear as classes in the article element with a "tag-" prefix, so if you have a "New" tag it will have a "tag-new" class. You could create a query to find them and then display them.

There is the option of using the Tag Cloud content block and then make the text all the same size by putting this into the Custom CSS: 

.tagcloud-block .name { font-size: medium !important }

This isn't as an elegant solution @paul2009's  as you'd have to manually input it into each blog, but it has the potential to be a simple fix.
