What We Offer

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 brought over 73,000 cases of Anheuser-Busch beer to folks in Phoenix.
While preserving trusted partnerships with our employees, customers, community, and our supplier partners; we strive to cultivate new ones and exceed expectations…with the finest team in the industry.
Through tradition, innovation, and superior service, Hensley will remain the market leader in beverage distribution delivering an expanded portfolio of world- class products as diverse as the communities we serve.
While Hensley’s business is to sell world-class beverages, our mission is to treat our partners and customers like family, and our philosophy is to do much more. As a longstanding member of Phoenix and its surrounding communities, Hensley believes in actively promoting responsibility. We are a nationally-recognized leader in campaigns to reduce alcohol abuse, underage drinking, and drunk driving.

Budweiser Shoot-Out

Since 1991, Hensley Beverage Company and Anheuser-Busch have hosted the Budweiser Shootout Golf Tournament with the sole purpose of raising scholarship funds for Hispanics striving to complete their college education. Over one million dollars has been raised through the efforts of the Budweiser Shootout Golf Tournament, supporting deserving Latino students pursuing higher education. This year, the 24th annual Budweiser Shootout is supporting two charitable organizations: The Arizona State University Hispanic Business Alumni (HBA) and the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Financial support of the 24th Annual Budweiser Shootout has a significant impact on the ability of these two organizations to help students. The tournament continues to be supported by a vast variety of corporate sponsors who believe in the mission and benefit, and realize the importance of how critical this concern is for the work-force-ready society in the 21st century. For more information on the 24th Annual Budweiser Shootout, visit the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce website here.
