Our Story

founders-mobile

Tin Roof Brewing Company was started by two childhood friends with a passion for beer and a desire to create their own southern, handcrafted brand.

 

The dream was born when Charles Caldwell ventured out west in the early 2000s to work on a ranch in Colorado. During his stint as a ranch hand, Charles experienced an abundance of microbrewed beer and immediately fell in love. Upon returning, he was disappointed to find the deep south lagging behind in the craft beer world. The dream of building his own brewery was born, but it would take years before it came to fruition.

 

Charles became a banker in his hometown of Natchez. Mississippi. He began making trips down to Baton Rouge to visit his childhood buddy, William McGehee, who was finishing up his law degree from Louisiana State University. William had also developed a palate for the finer beers during a law school summer abroad program in Europe. During one weekend trip and after indulging in a few beers, the topic of creating a brewery came up. The two decided it was now or never, and what better career change for a banker and a lawyer than to start brewing beer. After several years of hard work, their dream became a reality with their first batches of beer being produced for commercial consumption in November 2010.

    Bio

    Jacob came over from the distribution side of the business. He has nearly 10 years of beverage distribution experience, which gives him a unique perspective on the beer business.

    He pretends to be a homebrewer sometimes, but he’s better off not doing that…

  • Cala

    Packaging Lead

    Bio

    Our resident goldilocks, Cala, is also our packaging lead. You can find her name on almost every Tin Roof project because she has experience in just about everything. In her free time, Cala is a kickass guitar player with vocal skills to boot. She’s also a zookeeper at Zoosiana. Cala believes wholeheartedly that, somewhere, it is 5 o’clock.

  • Tyler

    Packaging Assistant

    Bio

    In a room full of boisterous extroverts, Tyler could be described as quiet, but when the beers get cracked his smile does too. Tyler makes the canning line run smooth and as calm and collected as he is.

  • Alexandra

    Lab Technician

    Bio

    As a quality technician, it is Alexandra’s job to ensure that our beer is as good as it can possibly be. Since her start here, we have held our beer to a higher standard for its packaging life and customers have taken note. She plays a very important role in our brewery and we are thankful to have her!

  • Trent

    Production

    Bio

    Trent is a native of Atlanta. He is our resident personal trainer, but he is doing a horrible job of whipping us into shape.

  • Craig

    Taproom Manager / Private Parties

    Bio

    Craig discovered craft beer due to his habit of taking any interest far beyond surface level.  A former concert chaser, today he is content with a dartboard and a stocked kegerator right in his living room. His favorite beer style changes by the hour, but his closest friends know him as a full blown hophead.

  • Joel

    Taproom

    Bio

    Joel is the only Cajun we know that doesn’t care for crawfish, but what he does care for is some sweet metal and an ice cold beer. When this Lafayette native isn’t working you’ll more than likely find him hanging out with his two boxers Dallas & Xena and playing music with his band Neat.

  • Greg

    Taproom

    Bio

    Greg is everyone’s favorite burley man. He enjoys our seasonal Smiling Ivan, was a former LSU football player, and personally identifies with Braveheart. As a Baton Rouge local, Greg struggles with the fact he’ll never truly be able to be Lord Eddard Stark, Warden of the North, because winter is not coming to our city any time soon.

  • Eric

    Taproom

    Bio

    Eric is a Midwestern transplant that moved to Baton Rouge for graduate studies in music at LSU. His love for craft beer nurtured by all of the fantastic breweries in Wisconsin and Michigan naturally lead him to seek out Tin Roof as soon as he arrived in Louisiana. Eric started working behind the bar shortly after becoming a Tin Roof regular. He is partially responsible for what is likely the only robot percussion concert to ever take place in our brewery…

    Favorite Brew

    Pretty much any of the tart or sour beers!

  • Brandon

    Taproom

    Bio

    “Also as for my bio, I like rock and roll and craft beer. I trust anything else you guys add or subtract.”

    Well, Brandon, maybe you shouldn’t have…Brandon likes the Jonas Brothers, Kardashians, kicking puppies, and has never missed an episode of Jersey Shore. 

    While this information may or may not be true, he actually has been known to hold down the low end for a few bands over the years. He is one of a few bass players here at Tin Roof.

  • Barley

    The Cat

    Bio

    The origins of Barley are relatively unknown. He randomly showed up one day and he hasn’t left. He has since become a valuable member of the Tin Roof family and we all take care of him. Cala provided a comfy bed, Rivers made him Insta Famous, Craig feeds him and Jacob tolerates him.

  • Mishka

    Bio

    Mishka is our lovable brewery dog. Before you ask, he is a Great Pyrenees and he is never very far away from his owner, Alexandra. He likes to spend his days soaking up the cool concrete floor and discussing important brewery business with his feline companion, Barley.
