about the owners

The idea of a small batch brewing operation with a fun and inviting taproom was conceived by Husband and Wife Team Matt and Danee’ Williams several years ago.  With careful planning, along with the encouragement and assistance of Matt’s Parents, Mark and Deeda DeLillo, the Oil Well Craft Beer taproom became a reality in January of 2017. 


Do to the amazing support of our community the decision was made to finally add the brewery we had always planned.  So when the space next door to the taproom became available a year after we opened we jumped at the opportunity and in 2019 the brewery was born.  With our 3bbl brewing system we hope to maintain our identity, while also being innovators in the local craft beer scene and bringing you some of the finest beer the great state of Florida has to offer. 


Thanks to our dedicated Friends, Family and Patrons we were also honored to have been voted the “Best Beer Bar” in the entire state of Florida in 2019 by www.CraftBeer.com.


We encourage all fellow beer geeks or those just getting into the wonderful world of craft beer to make the trek out to Ave Maria, Florida and spend some time with Matt and Danee’, or the best bartender around, AJ Luminiello.  You won’t be disappointed.
