About Us

The Drink Nation

The Drink Nation is a free online publication that helps users find happy hours, drink specials, and drinking-related events in and around their city. We utilize real people to call and update our listings in order to provide users with the most up-to-date information available. In addition to our listings, we provide a comprehensive resource of original content, like bar and drink reviews, tailored to the city’s drinking culture.

Our website started in Philadelphia and quickly expanded across the country to Baltimore, Washington D.C., Denver, CO, Portland OR, and New York City. We have a nationwide audience that concentrates on being the local night life hub in each of the cities we’re in. The Drink Nation team can be found across the United States. 

Adam Schmidt   Founder & President

Favorite Beverages: Hefeweizens, Chianti, & Aviations

 Adam Schmidt founded Drink Philly in 2009 on the belief that everyone should have access to quality drinks at an affordable price. Thanks to Adam's vision and THE  INTERNET, that belief is now shared and realized by thousands of users visiting The Drink Nation family of sites every day. When he is not working at The Drink  Nation Intergalactic Headquarters, you can find him...working somewhere else on his iPad.

 Favorite Beverages: Sour Beer, Belgian Beer, Local Beer, Home Beer and Beer
 Favorite Animal: Horse

 Sarah started with The Drink Nation as an intern in 2012. Since then, she has photographed, researched, typed and edited her way through the ranks to beomce a leading member of the team. When she's not caught in the trendrils of the interwebs, you can probably find her horsin' around at the barn or experimenting with a new homebrew recipe.

 Charles Wiedenmann   Director of National Advertising

 Favorite Beverages: Chardonnay
 Favorite Animal: Lion

 With over 30 years of experience, Charles heads up our National Advertising team of professionals. When he's not delivering your brand to our thirsty audience, you'll  find him surrounded by the affluent, sipping on a cool vodka martini, straight up with a twist...


Dr. Claw   Unknown

Favorite Beverage: Unknown
Favorite Animal: Probably the cat?

 Very little is known about Dr. Claw and he won't answer any of our questions. He mostly just sits in his office watching a monitor and occasionally pounds his fist on his desk. He kind of came with the office, so we just let him do his thing.
