Scarlet Lane Brewing to close two of five locations

Scarlet Lane Brewing Co. LLC announced Monday plans to close tap rooms in the Meridian-Kessler and Kennedy-King neighborhoods in Indianapolis while continuing to serve customers at three other locations.

Saturday will be the last day of operations at 4601 N. College Ave. Unit C and 1702 Bellefontaine St., the craft beer company announced via social media posts.

Eilise Lane, the company's CEO and head brewer, told the IBJ that personal health challenges contributed to the decision to close the two locations.

"It's taking me away from work, not just as a brewer but from running the company," she said of an undisclosed illness. "One of my business partners is also my husband, and he's spending time going to doctors with me."
