While serving in the Navy, LeAnn’s love for craft beer was ignited while stationed in San Diego, living just three blocks from Coronado Brewing Company’s taproom. After the Navy, she pursued a career in corporate finance while working at Google, but could never stop daydreaming about having a brewery of her own. She began homebrewing and left her corporate job to join a beer e-commerce startup that ultimately brought her to NYC, where she serendipitously met Tara. Within three months of knowing each other, they had formed the LLC that is now TALEA Beer Co.
