Who We Are

Family Owned and Operated

Established in 1980 by Hap Boening to distribute beer in the northern counties of the New York metro area. Oak Beverages since then has expanded to servicing New York City’s five boroughs as well as Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland, Sullivan, Orange, and Ulster Counties. Under the leadership of CEO and President Debra Boening who is the first Woman Chairperson of the New York State Beer Wholesalers Association, Oak proudly stands as the only Woman Owned Beverage Wholesaler in the State of New York. Oak Beverages is also a member of the Rockland Business Association where we have been honored with the Pinnacle Award in the “Women’s Forum for Outstanding Achievements by a Woman-Owned Business” category, being recognized for our consistent record of exceptional business performance and growth.

With a dedicated team of over 350 individuals operating from two warehouses equipped with a fleet of 70 beverage trucks, Oak Beverages remains committed to excellence and evolution. Our extensive product portfolio features world-class beverages highlighting not only our own capabilities but also those of our parent company, Boening Brothers.
