About US

TALEA (pronounced tuh-lay-uh)

Both avid homebrewers with MBAs, LeAnn and Tara met after leaving their jobs in tech and media to join the beer industry.

Working together on a daily basis, their passions quickly aligned and they realized a shared vision: to create a beer company that speaks to people like them… women.

For years, they were browsing the beer aisle on a regular basis and saw that despite the fact that more women were drinking beer, nothing on the shelves resonated with them. Wine and hard seltzer companies were yelling loud and clear, but when choosing a beer, it was often packaged in masculine (and sometimes sexist) cans. That’s why they created TALEA Beer Co.

Beyond their inclusive, intriguing packaging, TALEA brings an approachable, lifestyle-focused voice to beer. TALEA’s beers are “easy to love”: low bitterness, fruit flavor-forward and inspired by life’s everyday celebrations.

The TALEA taproom will replicate a winery experience: airy, light, and welcoming with private tours and tastings available for special events. The taproom will be attached to a large scale production facility to produce cans & kegs for taproom visitors and TALEA lovers across NYC and The Hamptons.

Tara and LeAnn began developing TALEA only four months after knowing each other and have spent countless evenings, weekends, and “lunch dates” to bring TALEA to the market. In January 2019, Johnny Osborne joined as Head Brewer - bringing years of beer production and operations experience to the team.

TALEA’s SUN UP and LUNCH DATE are on draft and in cans across NYC and the Hamptons. Upcoming releases include a raspberry gose, sour IPA, and Brut IPA. Stay tuned!
