    Moving to Wixom from eastern Oakland County. Based on my research here and elsewhere, it seems my craft beer options will be changing significantly. While I could still make trips to Dragonmead, Kuhnhenn, Holiday Market, 8 Degrees, etc., it won't be nearly as simple as it is now. I'm familiar with Uptown Grill and I know I'll be closer to Witch's Hat and the Milford places. Is Hiller's going to be my best bet as far as bottle and can selection goes? Are there other bars/breweries/stores that I should look into?

    As far as bottle shops go, there's definitely a few good ones in the area, although not as many nor as close together as on the east side. If you're in the area of Uptown, I'd recommend Discount Drinks in Farmington Hills (12 Mile and Halsted). Good selection, a make your own 6pack shelf, and reasonable prices.

    You're also now closer to Ann Arbor, which has a plethora of breweries (Jolly Pumpkin, Wolverine, Arbor, Grizzly Peak, etc.) and beer bars (Ashley's, Bill's Beer Garden, Dominick's). As a plus, most of those are within walking distance of each other.

    It would be a worthwhile trip down to Plymouth to hoist a pint at Liberty Street Brewing. There is also Country Acres Market a little west of South Lyon on Ten Mile Rd. for bottles and cans.

    Good bottle shop: Wixom Liquor on Pontiac Trail & Wixom next to the Little Ceasars. Mike will take care of you.

    For taps: Other than Uptown... Palate in Milford isn't too far away. And Witches Hat is a top 5 brewery in MI, IMO.

    Check out Palate, my local pub in Milford.

    My local brewery is River's Edge in Milford. They are making clean and balanced beers out of the box, and they may have some more interesting things in the future.

    Places that have some bottled craft beer in ascending order Holden's, Colisanti's, and Pine Ridge. The last 2 are just north of Milford with a Highland address.

    As everyone else said. Wixom Liquor has a good selection and make your own 6 pack. Love Witches Hat, Uptown and Palate.
