A native of Columbus, IN, Lead Brewer Chris Knott began homebrewing in 2008 in Athens, GA, when he was a Manufacturing Engineer.Â Chris became entrenched in the fantastic beer and food scene in Athens, and he was greatly influenced by the beers coming out of Terrapin and the wonderful selection of draft beers available at Trappeze Pub.Â Chris decided to make a career change when he saw a Sam Adams commercial where Jim Koch said, "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."Â Chris began his professional career at Ram in downtown Indianapolis in 2010 as the assistant brewer.Â Shortly after being promoted to Head Brewer, Chris left Ram after three years to become the Head Brewer and help launch Scarlet Lane where he 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.
Since joining Flix, Chris has won 3 more medals at the 2015 Indiana Brewers' Cup as well as earning both his and Flix Brewhouse's first Great American Beer Festival medal (silver) in 2015 with his Generation Altbier in the German Alt-bier category.
