JC is not defined by his past, is only defined by his goals and dedication. I got a chance to meet and sit down with him, just before he takes on the challenge of doing a physique competition. From our conversation, I learned that he has been through so much but has come out the other side a better man. He is not the type of person to shy away from that conversation of his past, which will in turn make for a really incredible story when he releases his memoirs. This is a very intense conversation about certain things people will be uncomfortable with, but a conversation is still need to be had.

The inception of the idea for Helio Basin Brewing Co. started, albeit merely as a pipe dream for the founders, almost 15 years ago over a few homebrew batches with some friends at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. After graduation they went two different directions, Mike to the Marines as an officer and Dustin to the Siebel Institute to start a professional brewing career. As time passed, one thing always kept coming up in conversation, the idea of opening up a brewery.

After seeing and getting to know the industry from the inside out for almost a decade, it was decided that if this idea was ever going to become a reality, now was the time. It became clear that the location would be Phoenix after a few short discussions. Dustin fell in love with Arizona after brewing for a few years here for another brewery and Mike loves the warm weather and has family in the Valley, making for an easy sell for both of them. That, paired with the ever rising craft beer scene here in the Valley, makes for a very desirable location. If you would like to hear more about the brewery go to  the following:

In 1911 Zebulon Pearce purchased half of a produce, poultry, and egg business. A short time later the other half was purchased by Charles M. Johnson. Thus Johnson Pearce Produce Company was formed on October 24, 1914. On July 22, 1919, Mesa Seed & Feed Company was formed. In 1926, Mesa Seed & Feed Co. and Johnson Pearce Produce Company were merged and became Johnson Pearce Commercial Company with Zeb Pearce as president and major stockholder. From 1911 to 1932 the Pearce family companies were only in the produce and home and farm supply business. When Franklin D. Roosevelt repealed the 18th amendment making the brewing of beer legal again, the Pearce Company won the Coors Beer distributorship due to their cold storage facilities, beginning a long association which has lasted to this day. The Zeb Pearce Companies are one of the oldest family-run businesses in Arizona.  

Today, Zeb’s descendant, Meghan Alfonso has used that family history to demonstrate true passion of the heart. The Pearce Family Foundation’s initiative will help families get back on their feet by paying for bills at the home and step in so the parents can focus on their child’s journey to get well. Meghan has a passion for contributing to the community and feels it is important to help those in need. If you wanna learn more go to the following:

The ALS Association is something that we chose to highlight because it is something that anyone can get. This makes it important and necessary to hear the information in this episode.

PodCastLogo-06.jpg

Waste Not was established in 1987 because of one woman’s passionate desire to help feed the Valley’s hungry men, women and children. From humble beginnings with a donated truck, volunteers began rescuing nutritious perishable food that would otherwise go to waste, delivering it to local shelters on a regular basis. Waste Not delivered 2,500 pounds of food to local shelters in its first year. In 1990, Waste Not received its 501 (c) (3) corporate designation and has grown from a volunteer-led, grassroots effort into a full-fledged professional organization utilizing five refrigerated trucks, with a full-time staff of nine people. In 2011, we delivered over 2 million pounds of nutritious food to 107 recipient agencies. Rescuing wholesome food that would otherwise be thrown away and feeding hungry people is still our mission today and is our only initiative.
