Scarlet Lane Brewing Company
7724 Depot St
McCordsville, IN 46055
(317) 336-1590

Scarlet Lane opened in 2014, bringing to fruition a plan to " start a Northwest inspired brewery in the heart of the Midwest. "
Scarlet Lane's motto is "Beer Cultivates Wisdom and Friendships."


The building was a farm/train depot with tanks in an old warehouse.
Scarlet Lane's beers, served in their tap room, were all organic, with more flavor than expected from a young brewery.
Night's Watch was a nice black IPA.
Dorian was a smooth milk stout that was better on nitro.
The Vivian Red IPA had a nice hoppy edge.
The best beer I consumed during my visit was a bourbon barrel aged Dorian that was very flavorful (reminded me of a smoother DuClaw Retribution).
