Bastone Brewery on Main Street in Royal Oak has gotten a major shout out for its beer.
Anjana Schroeder of Crain's Detroit Business writes that the restaurant and its brewmaster, Rockne Van Meter, were named Small Brewpub and Small Brewpub Brewer of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado over the weekend.
Crain's reports that the award is given to a brewery that produced fewer than 750 barrels in 2013. There were 23 entries in the the Small Brewpub category.
Crain's writes that the brewery was recognized for two beers: Thor’s Hammer in the Belgian-Style Strong Specialty Ale category; and Private Stock #472 in the Wood- and Barrel-Aged category.
