Lindsay and Matt Shortway are self-professed Yankees by birth and Southern by choice. They grew up in New Jersey and New York, meeting in college at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. They originally came to the area with the Marine Corp in 2009. Following Matt's 10 years of active duty service, they chose to move back to the area to pursue their dream of opening a brewery. Their dream became a reality in October 2017 when they opened Shortway Brewery in downtown Newport.
Matt and Lindsay stay very busy between the brewery and their three children, Anna, Levi and Rachel as well as their two dogs, Suri and Azure. Matt enjoys fishing, bike riding and backyard sports with the kids. Lindsay loves spending time crafting, baking with the kids and taking trips to the beach. Both Matt and Lindsay are avid runners - Lindsay has run 3 half-marathons in 3 states in the last 3 years; Matt is currently training for his second marathon.
Matt confesses his only dance experience is from wedding receptions and Marine Corps balls. Lindsay has some childhood jazz, tap and ballet instruction under her belt. Plus, she admits to watching hours of "Dancing With the Stars" - vicarious dance instruction counts too!!
