A quick shout-out to 8 Degrees Plato, the wonderful Ferndale beer store our readers selected as having the Best Beer Selection in Oakland County. We blew it in our print edition, accidentally giving the award to Western Fruit & Meat Market as well (that would be Best Wine). Sorry about that. Drop in and sample their sublime suds at 611 W. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale; 248-808-6477.
