05 Sep Scarlet Lane Brewing Co. Parts Ways with Head Brewer, Currently Interviewing Candidates
McCordsville, Indiana – Scarlet Lane Brewing Company and Head Brewer Chris Knott have decided to part ways. Chris joined Scarlet Lane Brewing Company in January as Head Brewer. During his time at Scarlet Lane Brewing, Chris oversaw production of Dorian Stout, Vivian Red IPA and developed Saison de Silas. Chris was a significant part of Scarlet Lane’s achievement of three medals at the 2014 Indiana Brewers’ Cup after only being in operation for 2-months.
“We launched this brewery with a clear set of goals on where we want to go as a business and what our overall vision is for the market. Starting a brewery is extremely stressful and requires a high level of teamwork at every turn,” Eilise Lane, CEO & Brewer says. “It’s extremely important that we share an overall vision of the business strategy.”
“Chris is an amazingly talented brewer and we wish him success in his future endeavors,” said Nick Servies, Founder and CBO.
In the meantime, Eilise Lane and Doug Sheets will continue production and brewery operations and development. “Chris contributed a lot to the brewery. However, we had different mindsets on where we wanted to take the business and how we wanted to do it. I look forward to seeing Chris’s achievements as he moves to something better suited for him personally,” Doug Sheets, Owner & COO.
Scarlet Lane is currently in talks with several candidates for the Head Brewer position. The naming of a new Head Brewer for Scarlet Lane Brewing Company will be the topic of a future announcement.
