Your role and tenure with Concrete Beach:

Sales Manager since February 2015 (3 years).

What do you love about working in the craft beer industry?

The people and the culture – you get to meet new people every day who are passionate, excited, fun and dedicated. The culture is chill, but also fast-paced. I love trying new beers and talking beer with the people I meet.

What changes would you like to see made to the craft beer community, if any?

Continued education in the craft beer category — it’s a great place to be!

If you were a beer, what style would you be?

I’d be a DIPA! I’m a lot spicy and a little sweet!


Tati

Your role & tenure with Concrete Beach

Key Holder, 3 years

What do you love about working in the craft beer industry?

I’ve been working in the craft beer industry since 2012. It’s been a HUGE learning experience for me. I love all the people that I’ve met working at World of Beer and Concrete Beach. Some of my closest friends now work at different breweries in Miami. And I love being part of a community that collectively focuses on improving our craft and sharing it with everyone as opposed to seeing each other as competition. That relationship is hard to match in any other industry.

What changes would you like to see made to the craft beer community, if any?

No changes…yet 😉

If you were a beer, what style would you be?

I would be a stout! A really sweet, malty, stout. One you can drink with a spoon.

What changes would you like to see made to the craft beer community?

Make 2018 Year of the Woman.

If you were a beer which style would you be?

Strong Ale cause I’m a strong Ále!

 

 


Nathalie

Your role & tenure with Concrete Beach:

6 months as the Magic Maker Marketing Specialist and the previous 3 years as La Jefa Sr. Account Manager.

What do you love about working in the craft beer industry?

The craft beer industry is full of aficionados motivated by their passions and it’s a privilege to work alongside people with that kind of energy – the world can use more of that.

What changes would you like to see made to the craft beer community, if any?

I would like to see the trend of merging across genders and cultures continue, and witness where that merge takes the industry next! That would be dope.

If you were a beer, what style would you be?

I would be a medium-bodied Lager – deeper flavor, smooth, well-balanced, and gets the job done.


Two thumbs up for Miami Gras!

Juliana

Your role & tenure with Concrete Beach:

I am the General Manager, AKA the Self-Designated Adult In-Charge. I have been with the Concrete Familia since April 2014.

What do you love about working in the craft beer industry?

There are so many things to love about the craft beer world!

  1. It allows me to be creative and create experiences and stories that will make people happy.
  2. It is a lifestyle! I have learned so much about the culture of craft beer and the passion for the industry.  Everyone is always coming together to brainstorm on how to get better.
  3. It gives me the opportunity to be different from the norm and stand out.
  4. As a mother of two children, I am happy to be part of a wonderful industry that is taking notice of hard working women. The craft beer industry is leading changes and knocking down barriers for our children.

What changes would you like to see made to the craft beer community, if any?

I would like to see more of a collective effort within the craft beer community to educate people from other countries that are unfamiliar with Craft Beer.

If you were a beer, what style would you be?

I would be a Double IPA like our Mas Hops… always pushing the limits!

 


Meredith

Your role & tenure with Concrete Beach:

Marketing Manager, 8 months.

What do you love about working in the craft beer industry?

I love the creativity, unity and passion that people in the craft beer industry carry and exhibit on a daily basis. They demand quality and have the persistence to create something truly special that resonates with their communities.

What changes would you like to see made to the craft beer community, if any?

I think the craft beer industry is more inclusive than many other industries and I would love to see that trend continue and amplify! We welcome in women and men from every race, religion and background and from that practice comes new ideas and different points of view!

If you were a beer, what style would you be?

I’ll make this easy and go with our own Honey Rye Lager! My personality is sunshine-y, sweet and easy-going!

 


Cheers to all the women in the beer industry and beyond!
