Provincetown Brewing Co. (PBC) launched Fall 2018. PBC’s taproom is now open in the heart of Provincetown, MA. Founded on the progressive ideals that make Provincetown great, PBC is passionate about brewing quality craft beer and evoking a sense of community by reclaiming shared, revolutionary, American values, anchored on the iconic geography of Provincetown.
Activism is our ethos. Each PBC product highlights a cause or organization we care about: from LGBTQ+ rights to conservation and more, charities receive a percentage of sales from each product sold. People from far and wide come to Provincetown and love it for its unique character. PBC is the taste that will take you back to Provincetown year round.
THE BEARDED MISTRESS
A traditional, smooth India Pale Ale you can take to the beach.
Brewed with wheat, pilsner and flaked oat malt. Bittered with Mosaic and Hallertau Blanc hops and dry hopped with Mosaic and Citra. The brew is medium bitter with a heavy floral and juicy finish including wine-like notes of a grassy Sauvignon Blanc.
GOLDEN HOOK ALE
A refreshingly drinkable Golden Ale.
Brewed with classic pilsner malt and flaked corn. Lightly bittered with Cascade hops and finished with dry hopped Mosaic hops. The brew is mildly sweet, with citrus and floral undertones including notes of crisp apple and grapefruit.
A mildly tart sour ale, finished with cranberries for the fruity beer drinker.
The Enchanted Hefe
An enchanted hefeweizen with notes of banana, clove, bubblegum and spice. A collaboration with Dorchester Brewing Co.
GIVING BACK #DRAFTIVISM
At Provincetown Brewing Co., we believe that quality craft beer can be an exercise in community building and giving back. Everyone who enjoys a PBC brew is participating in an act of recreational activism. Or as we call it, #draftivism. That’s because we donate 15% of all profits to specific causes and organizations that we believe in - from LGBTQ+ inclusion to environmental conservation and support of a year-round artists community on the Outer Cape. Check out the back of our cans to learn more about our non-profit partners.

The Generations Project
What they do: The Generations Project preserves the history of the LGBTQ+ movement through intergenerational storytelling. Since LGBTQ+ history has a history of being forgotten, we are dedicated to capturing the stories of Provincetown as a historic LGBTQ+ destination. Now until Fall 2021, The Generations Project is building the Provincetown 400 Time Capsule, a physical manifestation of LGBTQ+ communities in Provincetown.
Summer of Sass
What they do: Summer of Sass transforms lives by relocating LGBTQI 18-20 yr olds from oppressive areas in the US to the welcoming community of Provincetown, MA. For years we have been telling young queers “It Gets Better.” Summer of Sass takes the message one step further by showing the next generation what better looks like.
Provincetown Conservation Trust
What They Do: The Provincetown Conservation Trust preserves the woods, wetlands, dunes and forests of Provincetown, along with the great variety of flora and fauna that call them home. Founded in 1980, the PCT is an essential player in safeguarding Provincetown’s threatened natural habitats, which serve as an important Greenway for migrating birds, key links in the wildlife corridors of Cape Cod, and a vital component of the ecological health of the United States Eastern Seaboard. The PCT currently oversees more than 56 acres in conserved natural habitat throughout Provincetown, advocates for responsible development, and regularly organizes tours and walks to appreciate and maintain Provincetown’s greenspaces.
