beer of the week
Scarlet Lane Brewing Co. McCordsville, IN
Distinctively ever changing and always unforgiving in its character, Dorian aims to change your thinking of Stouts. Each revolving Dorian Stout incorporates unique and artful approaches to the painting canvas of this traditional beer. A combination of carefully selected Northwest hops, masterfully selected malts and distinct additions will take you to a new discovery of Stouts. Don't go mad however, it's not you changing, it's the Dorian Stout constantly rediscovering itself. Sit back with a book or friends and make a toast to that portrait of yourself with Scarlet Lane Brewing Company's Dorian Stout.
