Hensley Beverage Company Expands 'Real Mexican Beer' Brands Presence, Day Of The Dead & Mexicali, In Arizona

LOS ANGELES, April 14 , 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinks Americas (OTC: DKAM; "Drinks Americas" or the "Company"), the exclusive United States broker for leading premium authentic Mexican beers currently present in over 34 states, today is pleased to announce that leading Arizona distributor, Hensley Beverage Company, has agreed to take on the Company's increasingly popular authentic Mexican Day of the Dead Craft Beer and Mexicali, and incorporate the brand into their key accounts across the state.

Founded in 1955, Hensley Beverage Company is Arizona's leading distributor of beer, fine wine, and non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. With a proprietary service fleet of more than 600 vehicles and the support of over 690 employees, Hensley is one of the largest family owned and operated beverage distributors in the nation – bringing refreshment to people all across Arizona, and championing over 700 brands of beer, craft brew, fine wine, premium spirits and good old-fashioned non-alcoholic beverages too.

"Hensley Beverage Company is very excited to bring Day of the Dead and Mexicali brands to Arizona. These brands provide Hensley with its first ever beer offerings in the Mexican import category. We could not have picked a better partner than the Cerveceria Mexicana Brewery which is the largest Mexican owned brewery selling brands in the United States," said Andy McCain, CFO and COO of Hensley Beverage Company.

"Hensley is a trusted partner to over 8,000 retailers, and a brand advocate to over 2,000 product labels.  The quality of products they carry, volume of products they distribute, and breadth of customers they serve throughout Arizona is truly unparalleled. We look forward to working with them and getting our authentic Mexican beer brands onto more shelves throughout the state," commented, Joseph Belli, VP of Sales, Day of the Dead Craft Beer.

Timothy Owens, Chief Executive Officer of Drinks Americas, added, "Having Hensley as a major distributor for our brewed-in- Mexico, Mexican-owned Day of the Dead Craft Beer as well as our traditional Mexicali beer is key to our continued penetration of the Arizona market. We have already secured Whole Foods Market throughout the state and are now focused on acquiring smaller, retail accounts. Hensley will provide us with the necessary support to do this and to continue our mission to bring 'real Mexican beer' back to the U.S."
