StacheStrong is a 501(c)3 Not-for-Profit Charity focused on raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.  StacheStrong has raised over $425,000 for brain cancer research since inception in 2018 and has become a beacon of hope for countless families across the country facing Glioblastoma, a currently incurable disease.  All proceeds raised go directly to brain cancer research.  
With these funds, StacheStrong has:

 

- Partnered with the National Brain Tumor Society and together funded $500,000 to launch GBM AGILE
- Funded $100,000 to Mount Sinai NYC for a fully personalized immunotherapy vaccine
- Funded $50,000 for the StacheStrong and NREF Research Grant on behalf of the AANS/CNS Section
- Funded $50,000 towards The Targeting DNA Damage Repair in Glioma Consortium.

 

Their mission and goal is to flip the script on GBM and change the word incurable to curable.

 

 

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and Copper Brothel Brewery is proud to join nearly 200 breweries in #BrewStacheStrong; a national beer collaboration that will raise funds and awareness around Glioblastoma.

 

Throughout the month of May, we will donate $1 for every pour of
Mark's S.M.A.S.H. for Stache IPA to StacheStrong.

Mark's S.M.A.S.H. for Stache IPA will be available throughout the month of May in our taproom by pint, flight, crowler, and growler fills.

It’s an honor to introduce you to Mark, the namesake behind our S.M.A.S.H. for Stache IPA. To my cousins he was Dad or Marus. To his grandkids he was Dziadusz. To his wife, brother, and sister in law he was Mark. To me and my siblings he was Wujek Marek.

 

In February 2019 Mark was diagnosed with Glioblastoma after doctors found an aggressive tumor in his brain. Despite being told he was terminally ill, Wujek was overwhelmingly optimistic and positive. Over the next year my aunt and his two daughters watched and assisted as he gave every ounce of fight to kick cancers ass before passing in February 2020. In that year Wujek continued to travel and make the most of the time he had left with his family.

 

One of my favorite childhood memories included get-togethers at his house as he served guests from behind his basement bar while R.E.M. played in the background. I hope you enjoy this special ‘stache’ from Marek’s private bar and raise your glass in his memory.

 

Na Zdrowie, Wujek!

Mary Jo Jesser | 1925 - 2006

More often than not, behind every good man there’s a good woman standing behind him. We’ve told you a little bit about Grandpa Glenn in our family bio and now we want you to meet his better half, Mary Jo.

 

Grandma was a pistol. She and Grandpa shared 55 years of marriage, three kids, and two grandkids. While she was very involved in her community, her greatest joy was spending time with her kids and grandkids, Sammie and Garrett. Her other hobbies included gardening, musicals, and being a bonafide card hustler at the Fort Lupton Senior Center.

On July 4, 2006, our family received the devastating news that Grandma Jesser had brain cancer. After a short, but unwavering fight with the disease, she passed in December 2006.

 

Cheers to an extraordinary woman, mom, and grandma!
