Tanael Escartin, a Venezuelan native, joined Uinta Brewing Company in March of 2017 as one of the country’s only female Brewmasters.
After earning her degree in Chemical Engineering, Tana got her start in the beer industry at Empresas Polar, Venezuela’s largest brewery. Quickly recognized for her talent for pairing yeast and grains, Tanael was selected as the first woman the brewery sponsored to study Brewing Science in Germany, where she earned her Master of Biotechnology Engineering with focus on Brewing Science from the Technical University of Berlin.
Upon returning to Polar Brewery, Tana worked her way up through the ranks before moving to the United States to work as a brewery consultant in Fort Collins, CO. After one year consulting for multiple breweries, assisting with production expansion and operations, Tanael landed a lead role as Director of Brewing Operations at Palmetto Brewing Co. in South Carolina, becoming the state’s first female Brewmaster.
Tanael’s passion and knowledge has inspired many to learn the scientific principals behind brewing and become schooled brewmasters themselves.
