History of the
Secret Society of Social Drinkers

Throughout American history alcohol has played an important role. Many times the Founding Fathers of the United States would often meet at the historic Tun Tavern and  City Tavern in Philadelphia to discuss the formation of the government. Samuel Powell, who once owned the land on which the City Tavern resides once ask Benjamin Franklin what they were meeting about. Franklin, who was known for his sense of humor, referred to their meeting as the Secret Society of Social Drinkers. Franklin knew it was important to conceal the identity to who and what was really being discussed.

Although the Secret Society of Social Drinkers organization may not be as private or as needed as it once was intended for... the spirit lives on by all those who gather to socialize over a few drinks.

FOUNDING MEMBERS

Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington, Roger Sherman, Robert Livingston
