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."
