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.

    Experience

    I once had a conversation with a young gentlemen in a bar where I was employed previously. He says to me, "Would ya look at that!" as he enthusiastically swirled his snifter. And ya know what I says? I says to him "Ya know, friend, not EVERY beer has to look and taste like orange juice, although I do thoroughly enjoy the style." Well he didn't take too kindly to my way of thinking. He says to me, "What are you? One of those fancy beer know-it-alls?" So I says back to him, "Nah man. Its just that when I'm finished with breakfast I like to continue on with the rest of my day." Now at this point you could see the disgust in his eyes, as if he thought I was personally insulting his own sense of taste. He looks at me out of the corner his eyes, and you know what he says to me? He says, "Oh, so just because it's 11:30pm Central Standard Time and I'm in a craft beer bar drinking a citrusy-Juicy IPA, a Coffee Porter, and am eating a stack of hotcakes with a side of bacon and 2 eggs over-easy you're gonna generalize that I must think every meal of the day is breakfast??" Now at this point I pause, sigh, and take a long hard look at this fella with one eyebrow furled. After what seems like an eternity, but realistically must have been more likely a 5 minute staring contest, I point my finger right in his face and I says...I says, "Well, pal, how do you explain your poofy slippers, striped pajamas, bathrobe, and night cap!" Now that was one hell of an experience.

    Bio

    Joel is the only Cajun we know that doesn’t care for crawfish, but what he does care for is some sweet punk tunes 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.

    Although she doesn’t have a beard, Lauren feels right at home in the Tin Roof taproom. When she’s not at the brewery, this English PhD student is most likely traveling or sitting on her porch with a book.

    Bio

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

    Well 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 many bass players here at Tin Roof.

    The Cat

    Bio

    The origins of Barley were relatively unknown. He randomly showed up one day and never left. He became a valuable member of the Tin Roof family and we all took care of him. Cala provided a comfy bed, Rivers made him Insta Famous, Craig feeds him and Jacob tolerated him.

    RIP, little buddy.
