Craft beer lovers, a new option heading to Battle Creek called Handmap Brewing.

They've been working on a date to have a soft opening since Governor Whitmer went into Phase 4 of the state's Safe Start Plan.

One of the brews they plan to have on tap is "Two Can Mash" which will give you a taste of the "Cereal City" with its "Froot Loops Flavor."

No word yet on when they will open up.

A new restaurant in Ada is getting ready to allow customers to dine-in, and they're hosting a ribbon cutting to celebrate.

The restaurant is known for its fresh farm-to-table ingredients and even has a coffee bar.

This MudPenny's second location in West Michigan. The other is on Grandville Avenue in Grand Rapids.
