GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- For a city dedicated to craft beer and local coffee, Grand Rapids has an opportunity to support a new craft soda business, too.

Proper Soda Company, founded last year, focuses on making beverages using simple and natural ingredients.

Its first product was a hops-flavored soda.

Now, the company's asking the public to choose its next flavor: coffee or hibiscus.

Proper Soda Company's Stephan Curtis said unconventional ingredients can taste surprisingly good.

"You don't really think of coffee as being delicious in a soda. You don't really think of hops as being delicious in a soda, but it's surprisingly good. And if it's made well with the right ingredients, it's delicious."

To help choose the next flavor, you can vote at Proper Soda Company's Kickstarter campaign at this link.
