"Start A Business"

In July 2014 over a jar of moonshine and some inebriated banter, our family discussed opening a brewery in Southern Arizona’s wine country. We talked about the Copper State’s history, the large unspoken contribution women played in building the Wild West, and how we can pay homage to the world’s oldest profession through craft beer.

A year passed and the idea of that drunken evening was long forgotten until the unexpected passing of our Grandpa Glenn. While looking through some of grandpa’s belongings we stumbled upon a list of final wishes, “start a business” topped the list.

In 2018 we honored Grandpa Glenn and the women of the west by opening Copper Brothel Brewery.

Our family is comprised of:

Cheryl Jesser - Owner & Matriarch

Sammie Jesser - Owner & Brewmaster

Bob Jesser - Business Manager & Doting Husband

TJ Martinez - General Manager & Damn Good Chef

Garrett Jesser - Sales Manager & His Older Sisters Beer Subordinate

Monika Jesser - Arts, Crafts & Marketing


And the roughly 25 employees who have become family.

Thank you for keeping our dream alive and supporting your local brothel.
