Matt Shields is the Ohio Liberator for Short's and Starcut Ciders. Before joining the Short's team, he worked as a Sales Rep with Cavalier Distributing for 4 1/2 years. His passion for craft beer really began in 2011 while working in a bottle shop in Dayton and he then decided he wanted to pursue a career in the industry. Outside of his passion for craft beer, Matt enjoys spending his time with his wife and two dogs, Brady and Balto. He's a die-hard sports fan (Go Blue!), and also enjoys travelling and spending time with friends and family.
