Earlier this month, Hensley Beverage proved once again that our award- winning portfolio is worthy of recognition on an international level. We pride ourselves as an industry leader and are ecstatic to showcase the talented brewers that make up the Hensley distribution family.

Known as “The Most Prestigious Beer Competition in the World”, the 2016 World Beer Cup was held on May 6 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where breweries and beer enthusiasts from around the globe competed for brewing glory. The World Beer Cup is held every two years and consists of over 200 highly qualified beer professionals judging different beers in over 90 style categories.
