Both avid homebrewers with MBAs, LeAnn and Tara met after leaving their corporate 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 and expand the craft beer market.
For years, they had browsed beer aisles and visited breweries and saw that despite the growing interest in craft beer, many beers were in intimidating packaging, many breweries are casual and industrial, and most craft beer branding is targeted towards the existing market. Tara and LeAnn created TALEA to create "easy-drinking beers, perhaps to replace that glass of rosé" (Florence Fabricant, The New York Times). Our beers are at the intersection of high quality, low-bitterness, and fruit-forward flavors, creating beers that you can comfortably share with your hard-seltzer and cider drinking friends, or open with your most discerning beer fans.
TALEA's hazy and fruited sour beers are available across NYC and the Hamptons. The TALEA taproom will open in 2020 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, bringing a beautiful, welcoming education-focused experience to NYC.
