Nestled in the quiet town of McCordsville is a brewery making
some big noise. Scarlet Lane is still young in the
Indy brewery scene but making some sophisticated brews to
temp the pickiest of palettes.
Owner and Head Brewer, Eilise Lane, cut her chops in the brewing business out in Oregon, and when the home brewing system started to overtake her home, Eilise and her husband Nick decided to pack it up, move back home to the Midwest, and start their own brewing business. What began as a production business quickly turned into a tap room due to the droves of locals who kept stopping by trying to get a cold one. So they found a corner to throw in some taps and a bar for a place to belly up to and it didn't take long for the word to get out.
The good people of McCordsville have become quite protective of what like to think of as their Scarlet Lane.
Cowboy, Pat, and Dougy Fresh had the pleasure of celebrating the Bicentennial at the Scarlet Lane Chili Cook Off. Unfortunately, we were unable to dazzle the crowd with our chili techniques, but that didn't stop us from having a great time while enjoying some delicious Scarlet brews.
Tune in and hear as Eilise goes into depth on her journey from craft beer fan to craft beer master and why it's Halloween every day at Scarlet Lane. Then make your way to Scarlet Lane and meet us for a few pints.
