You can deduce a lot about the philosophies behind 8 Degrees Plato Beer Company just from its name alone — “degrees plato” is a measurement of a beer’s sugar content, so you know these guys are serious about beer. As for the “8,” owner Tim Costello says it’s merely “the most aesthetically pleasing number” so you know these guys are out for fun as well. Today, 8 Degrees Plato offers Michigan-centric craft beer in addition to imports, ciders and charcuterie. Stop in on Fridays between 6 and 8 p.m. when the store hosts one of its weekly beer tastings.
