New cider taproom coming to town

 

According to an article published this week at MiBiz.com, Ada-based Sietsema Cider LLC,  will be opening a second tasting room at 70 N. Main Street, in the old Car Quest building, across the street from Cedar Springs Brewing Company.

They have reportedly leased 1,350 square feet of space in the building, and will apply for a microbrewery and distillery license so they can offer an array of alcoholic beverages. The tasting room will offer 12 taps to start, and seating for 25-35 people. They will also have a small kitchen for appetizers.

They hope to open before the start of summer after securing all permits. 

The article reported that David Ringler, owner of Cedar Springs Brewing Company, has encouraged owner Andy Sietsema to open the new business here.

The company started five years ago as a production-only alcoholic cider producer with the tasting room during the harvest season. No changes are planned for the current tasting room in Ada.

Sam Adams Motors

 

If you are looking to purchase a used vehicle, you might want to check out a new auto dealership in Solon Township. Sam Adams Motors, located at 2365 17 Mile Rd., south of Algoma Avenue, provides quality, pre-owned vehicles that are reliable, according to owner Sam Dabaja. “We also stand behind the vehicles we sell,” he added.

Dabaja said that they are a family-owned business with deep ties in the area, and have been a part of the business community for over 20 years. 

He feels that their edge over the competition is that they are in it for the long haul, not just a one-time deal. “We look at each deal as a beginning of a partnership,” explained Dabaja, “where we can continue to serve that family for many years to come. We do all of our car deals at the kitchen table.”

Dabaja said they are planning to grow their inventory in the coming months, and as their business grows, hire local employees as well.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over and check out Sam Adams Motors today! They are open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and closed on Sunday. For more info call (616) 439-4750.

GamePoint

 

There’s a new family fun center in Howard City, and it has a little something for everyone. Matrisha and Jeff Brown opened GamePoint, located at 201 E. Edgerton, Howard City, in September. They have fun activities such as air hockey, skeeball, pool, wall writing, basketball shootout, PS3 games, Wii games, VR, karaoke, and more. They also provide drinks and snacks, and have a room you can rent especially for birthday parties. 

They charge a one-time fee at the door, then all activities are free. “We are always adding new things to our business at the suggestion of our customers,” said the Browns. In the future they hope to organize special events, holiday activities, sell used gaming merchandise, and give prizes out to those who win a game. 

GamePoint is open every other Thursday and Friday noon to 8 p.m. and every other Saturday and Sunday noon to 8 p.m.
