"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

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 productlabels. 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."
