Tin Roof Brewing
The brainchild of two childhood friends, Charles Caldwell and William McGehee, Tin Roof Brewing was created after the two saw a need for more craft beer in South Louisiana. Deciding to put their careers aside, the friends, then a banker and lawyer, looked to make their dreams of owning a brewery a reality. Today, Tin Roof Brewing creates over five different delicious brews in their taproom.
