CEO, President and Inspired Inventor of ManCan
Realizing the flaws of the traditional glass growler and how some bottles and cans can actually wreck a good brew, Kevin Lehman set out to not just improve beer vessels but to re-invent them! After some tinkering and many long nights, Kevin developed the 64 oz. mini keg-style growler. An inventor at heart, an engineer by trade, and an avid homebrewer, it was completely natural for Kevin to be the guy who would innovate a revolutionary way to store and pour beer.
From his custom workshop-office, Kevin didn’t stop there. He received numerous requests from customers wanting more. Those requests led Kevin to develop a multi-port tap system that keeps beer fresh to the last drop, and a full gallon keg-style growler, the ManCan 128. To date, ManCan has 4 patents and 2 trademarks! Kevin is continuously working on improvements and new products.
Kevin is married to his best friend, Shelli, and is an avid outdoorsman that loves hiking, fishing, hunting, and camping. In his own words, “Anything outdoors and I am there!” Kevin loves to brew Wheats, IPAs, and Pale Ales in his free time. A true craft beer fan!
Kevin leads ManCan with a smile and truly wants to know how you’re doing before anything else. We are proud to have Kevin leading ManCan and improving the way people drink craft beer.
Atalie started with ManCan from the ground up. She joined the team to be marketing and PR support before the 2015 Kickstarter campaign, but quickly took on many different rolls. Atalie has a passion for craft beer and the industry that brings an important perspective to our marketing efforts and our brand. Atalie started her career as the Craft Beer Program Intern at the Brewers Association, where her love for craft beer and the craft beer industry only grew. She then worked for a PR agency based in New York, which handled the Brewer’s Association’s PR, keeping her tethered to the industry. Atalie specializes in targeted marketing efforts and SEO, but she brings so much more to the ManCan team by supporting in business plans, innovative ideas, sales efforts, and is one of the many ManCan advertising models!
Atalie and her husband Ben, who you have also probably seen in ManCan advertising, have a one year old son, a new baby on the way, and two awesome dogs, Sansa (a golden retriever who is another face of many ManCan ads) and Lola. She loves to fish, or in her words “catch all the fish”, brewery hop, and is a self-proclaimed beer pong champion.
Brand Manager and Graphic Designer
Lexi is ManCan’s graphic designer, brand specialist, and resident IPA lover. She takes pride in her ability to recognize the beauty in all things. Her passion for developing strong, consistent branding that reflects the spirit of the business is what quickly led ManCan to make her an integral part of the team. Lexi spent three years helping tech entrepreneurs get their mobile apps off the ground before deciding it was time to pursue her own entrepreneurial passion and venture out on her own. The tech world taught her how to use her graphic design training, how to create sustainable growth for small business in the modern world, and how to stand up for what she believes in.
Lexi met her fiancé at a local Denver brewery, Wits End, and beer has been their combined passion ever since. She is an amazing dog mom to two cute little dogs, Carlos and Tino, and has been a foster dog mom to many puppies looking for homes. Lexi is an independent lady who believes in gender equality, minimalist design principles, and a good IPA.
