Shoal Hope Ciderworks

Shoal Hope Ciderworks, named for Captain Bartholomew Gosnold’s short-lived geography error, is the first Cape Cod cidery and Provincetown’s original craft beverage producer, producing 100% of its ciders in P-Town for distribution throughout Massachusetts. Not much of a beer drinker and allergic to the sulfites in wine, the cidery’s founder, Rob Brosofsky fell in love with hard ciders. The cidery currently produces seven unique ciders, of which four are available at any given time. Shoal Hope also now has a hosted taproom located at Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis. 

Shoal Hope recently released its newest variety, Watermelon Dreams. Made with pure apple juice and all-natural watermelons, this cider, like all of Shoal Hope’s ciders, has a flavorful, dry finish. Also in the works, in collaboration with Chatham Kelp, is a kelp-infused drink, and Brosofsky is testing cans to serve restaurants that prefer cans to bottles on patios and pool decks along with stores that service beachgoers and boaters. 

Brofosky was a participant in the Pan-Mass Challenge which led him to Provincetown well before opening a ciderworks. Although no longer a participant, Brofosky remains a strong supporter of the event. The cidery has made a good name for itself in Provincetown and across the Cape as an active community member supporting a myriad of local events and organizations ranging from Provincetown’s TedX and Women’s Week events to the Cape Symphony.
