 Bringing Refreshment to Arizona since 1955

Back in 1955, a man named Jim Hensley had a dream to bring ice cold beer – an American tradition best enjoyed with family and friends – to thirsty Phoenicians. That year, Jim started his company with just 15 employees and, together, they distributed over 73,000 cases of Anheuser-Busch beer to folks in Phoenix.

Today – with a proprietary service fleet of more than 1,100 vehicles and the support of over 1,200 employees – Hensley is one of the largest family owned and operated beverage distributors in the nation. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona with branches in Chandler, Prescott Valley and Tucson, Hensley brings refreshment to people all across the state. Today, Hensley Beverage Company’s portfolio champions over 800 brands of beer, craft brew, premium spirits and refreshing non-alcoholic beverages too. In addition, we carry more than 1,500 labels represented by more than 140 suppliers. Some recognizable brand names in our overall portfolio of products include Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra, etc.), Sierra Nevada, Four Peaks, 3 Amigos Tequila, Xyience Energy Drinks.
