Our Story:

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 2000's to work on a ranch in Colorado. During his stint as a ranchhand, Caldwell 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.

Caldwell ended up in banking in his hometown of Natchez, Mississippi. He began making trips down to Baton Rouge to visit William McGehee, who was finishing up his law degree from LSU. McGehee had also developed a palate for the finer beers during a law school Summer abroad program in Europe. One weekend trip, after indulging in a few beers, the topic of the brewery came up. The two decided that it was now or never, and what better career path change for a banker and lawyer to take, 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.

Tom Daigrepont came on shortly after in December 2010 as Tin Roof's brewmaster and tour guide extraordinaire. Tom's 20+ years of homebrewing experience and ability to create outstanding beers added the final component. Since then, the Tin Roof team hasn't looked back.
