When something like that happens, reporters are usually down in the locker room after the game to get a few interviews and capture some audio and video of the celebration as the players go nuts.

Summer Craft Beer Fest 2014 – Pike 51 Brewing Sampling [Video]

Today, I got to sample some amazing beers at Pike 51 Brewing Company in Hudsonville.  They're part of our 2014 Summer Craft Beer Fest, happening this Saturday at John Ball Park.

If you haven't tried their brews, you owe it to yourself to stop by and do so.  They're very smooth beers, and don't assault you when you drink them, even the ones with higher alcohol content!  I really like how smooth they all are.

The Summer Craft Beer Festival is coming up next weekend, on July 19th at John Ball Park.  There will be something like 120 different craft brews you can sample, great food, live music...and ciders!

I will admit to being more of a cider guy than a beer guy, so I was really excited to get invited out to Sietsema Ciders this morning, to sample the ciders they will be bringing to the Summer Craft Beer Fest on the 19th!  I jumped in the car with the lovely Lauren from our sister station WFGR and headed out to Ada.

Andy, who's 4th generation apple farmer and hard cider maker, was our guide through their different ciders.
