Our History

Old time beer truck

Our trade association has a long and colorful history dating back to December 1944. We began as the Arizona Wholesale Beer and Liquor Association, a non-profit corporation created to promote and protect the general business interests of beer and liquor distributors operating across Arizona.

In more recent years, as the beverage alcohol industry continued to grow and evolve in our state and nationally, we decided to change our name and narrow our organization’s focus to only beer and wine distributorships, renaming the association as the Beer and Wine Distributors of Arizona (or “BWDA”). We are a full-service, professional trade association representing eleven locally-owned and operated beer and wine distribution companies actively doing business in Arizona.
