BEER CITY BUNG HAMMERS
Fans of the West Michigan Whitecaps know that the team has embraced Grand Rapids' thriving craft beer culture for several years. From a special logo for the 2014 Midwest League All-Star game logo, to our "Craft Clubhouse" presented by Founders, to the annual Michigan Brewer's Guild Winter Beer Festival held at LMCU Ballpark every year, the Whitecaps love craft beer. The Whitecaps took the next step with the local craft beer community and changing the team's name for one special night in 2018. Now, once a year, the Whitecaps become the Beer City Bung Hammers for "Salute to Beer City Night".
