McCORDSVILLE — Now that the Scarlet Lane Brewing Co. is up and brewing in McCordsville, its signature beers have been popping up around the area, and those looking to find a homegrown beer can finally get their fill.

“We’re always going to be growing,” co-owner Eilise Servies said. “We’re constantly at different events.”

Currently, Scarlet Lane Brewing is producing four beers. They are the Vivian Red IPA; Saison de Silas; a Dorian stout that includes coconut; and their seasonal dry hop pale ale.

“We love stout, so we’ll have a stout series,” Servies said.

Scarlet Lane just finished serving drinks at Fishers on Tap and will be at the Brew-Ha-Ha Craft Beer Festival in Indianapolis this weekend.

The brewery also is taking on a number of nonprofit causes as well. This week, the group is working with Outside the Box, a program that focuses on helping people with disabilities.

In the near future, Scarlet Lane Brewing will be able to perform growler fills in-house, and by the end of the summer, Servies expects to have a full tap-room ready to go for customers. Until then, 47 bars and restaurants in the area, including the Grill 2 in McCordsville, are serving Scarlet Lane beers.
