Mastry’s Brewing Co.

The first craft brewery on St. Pete Beach

Mastry’s Brewing Co. was founded in 2014 as a brew-pub operating out of a family-owned restaurant.  In 2016, the operations were expanded, and now Mastry’s Brewing is proud to be the first craft brewery and tasting room on St. Pete Beach. Taking traditional styles and combining influences from exotic locales, Mastry’s Brewing is elevating the beach beer experience.  With selections like JMC, a chocolate coffee porter, and the wildly popular, gold-medal winning Hefeweizen, locals and visitors continue coming back for more.

Matthew and Danie Dahm

Founder and Owners

Matthew and Danie are Florida natives and were inspired by their hardworking and entrepreneurial parents who built their own businesses from the ground up. Matthew is a 3rd generation Mastry, a huge family who has had its roots in St. Petersburg since the late nineteenth century. The couple wanted to honor this family history, and particularly Matthew’s grandmother, Juliet, so they chose it as the namesake for their brewery.

Avid craft beer fans, they began their own craft beer endeavor when Matthew began home-brewing on weekends while Danie worked on her doctorate. Matthew and Danie are passionate about beer and contributing to the local St. Pete and St. Pete Beach community. Come have a beer with us!

Micheil McElvey

Head Brewer

Micheil joined the Mastry’s Brewing team mid 2015, about 6 months in to the inception, while launching at the CD Roma Restaurant. While there he worked hand in hand with Mastry’s Brewing Co. founder and owner Matthew Dahm. At Matthew’s recommendation Micheil applied to the first inaugural class of USFSP Brewing Arts. Upon graduation Micheil was appointed head brewer of Mastry’s Brewing Co. St Pete Beach, FL. His passion evolved from working in the wine industry before transitioning into professional brewing.  Obtaining recognition as a Certified Cicerone® further cemented his love for the industry and continuing education.

Nick Gibson


Nick joined the team mid 2016, shortly after the opening of the brewery. His passion for craft beer came during his four years at The University of South Florida St. Petersburg when he worked in the lab at 3 Daughters Brewing in St. Petersburg. Not long after joining the brewing team, he enrolled into the fifth class of the USFSP Brewing Arts Program in pursuit of further gathering brewing knowledge. With his passion for craft beer and dedication to making the best possible product, he provides a level of energy that can only be achieved at Mastry’s Brewing Co.
