Kelsey Breunig leaves Tin Can Ale House

Former co-owner moves on—plus, some reggae-related benefit shows

By Peter Holslin

Kelsey Breunig has parted ways with Tin Can Ale House.

Since Tin Can opened in March 2009, Breunig has been a constant presence at the plucky Bankers Hill venue, booking shows by day and tending bar at night.

Breunig has handed her shares over to co-owners Patrick Conway and Justin Rodriguez, who’ve been running the venue with her since late last year. She declined to comment to CityBeat, but Conway says she left on good terms.

“Nothing crazy happened,” he says in an email. “We just amicably parted ways so she could pursue some other opportunities.”

With the recent addition of food and the venue’s new liquor license, Conway says business has been good. Asked if he and Rodriguez have what it takes to fill Breunig’s shoes, he was optimistic.

“I think it’s definitely going to be different,” he says. “[But] I’m really excited for what the future holds.”



Reggae bands Shoreline Rootz and The Devastators will perform at the Reggae to the Rescue benefit show at Belly Up Tavern on Monday, July 2.

Proceeds will go to the family of Andy Roder Powell, who had a kidney transplant in April and needs money to help cover the cost of medicine.

In other reggae-related news, The Room Downstairs will perform at a benefit for The 1:1 Movement, an organization that promotes sustainability, at Soda Bar on Tuesday, July 3.
