We began working on Prospect Ciderworks in 2014 to challenge the assumptions surrounding American Cider. We use progressive cider making methods to create balanced, distinctive ciders for our fans and friends. Think of it as an apple a day, in a different way.

Mark Finnegan

Co-Founder, Fermentation


Mark grew up watching tractors comb the orchard next door, knowing one day he would repurpose their fruit to make damn good booze. He often lifts kegs up just to put them down, exclaiming “it’s really not that heavy, guys.”

Chase Brooks

Co-Founder, Marketing


Chase joined us in our endeavor for a number of reasons, but ultimately because we needed him to “make art”. He can often be found dressed funny asking condescending questions about draft lists at your local craft beer bar.

Sam Copeland

Co-Founder, Operations


When Sam isn’t perusing the ever-exciting and truly limitless aisles of Home Depot, he can be found on a quiet river in western Massachusetts or deep in the woods of central Vermont, coaxing trout out of the water.

Ben Hamm Conard

Account Manager


Ben came to us from the faraway land of Texas (Tē-has) where he was a Mexican food truck critic. Ben was the first hire for Prospect, he spends his days slinging cider and trying not to crash the company van.

Leise Trueblood

Hiring & Events


Leise comes to us with a background in employee engagement, food service, and a high level of expertise in neon colors. She had ten macaroons and a bottle of simple syrup for breakfast this morning, and her snapchat story is currently at 300 seconds.

Katie Finnegan

Account Manager


Katie would rather be camping right now. She is fond of whiskey, naps, and oversized men’s LL Bean flannels. When not slinging cider she can be found discussing how to take better selfies with dogs.
