Our Story

Since its opening in 2014, SLB has brewed a variety of different beers ranging from Australian ales to ancient braggot-styles. With the successful launch of Dorian Stout, Eirik Bloodaxe and a variety of other popular beers, Scarlet Lane started packaging its flagship and seasonal beers for local grocery and package liquor stores throughout Indiana.

In late 2018 SLB expanded by opening additional Tap House locations to further expand the availability of its unique and balanced beers while enhancing the research and development program with small batch creations. Scarlet Lane delivers its own fresh, locally made beer to its satellite Tap Houses ensuring the experience is just like sitting at the production facility Tap House at 7724 Depot St., McCordsville, Indiana.

Scarlet Lane prides itself on offering a variety of beers for every kind of beer drinker. Each beer is its own character with a story to tell.

Head Brewer Eilise Lane is known for her stouts. Her love for the style started while drinking in Bend, Oregon and having a coconut stout brewed by Tonya Cornett at Bend Brewing Company. That beer started Eilise’s quest to learn how to homebrew.

A few years later Eilise went back to school to study fermentation sciences at the American Brewers Guild in Vermont. She went on to train with Fort George Brewing in Astoria, Oregon and worked alongside her good friends from Ninkas Brewing while living in Eugene, Oregon.

Eilise has collaborated with Fort George and her mentor Tonya Cornett while at 10 Barrel Brewing and continues to visit Oregon for inspiration. Her specialties are well balanced and unique beers designed with character.

You will most often find her brewing Stouts,Australian Ales or Northwest IPAs. She’s backed by a brew team of highly talented brewers in Mitch Roelecke and Joshua Hull; each empowered to create their own specialties and brew styles.

It’s no secret that Scarlet Lane likes all things macabre. The first beers for the brewery were delivered in a repurposed hearse that is still used today and appears at special events.

In 2015 Scarlet Lane became The Official Beer of Horror brewing the exclusive HorrorHound Weekend Ale that is available at the Ohio and Indiana horror conventions
