Who We Are

Matt's background in bio-molecular science fuels his desire to brew high quality beer, while Lindsay's communication & design experience has influence over the taproom atmosphere. 


After 10 years of service in the United States Marine Corps, Matt, Lindsay & their 3 children have planted roots on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. They couldn't be happier to be a part of the Newport community.
