Drunken Mermaid/drunkenmermaid.com launched in November 2003 as The Drunken Mermaid, an e-zine focusing on the Philly arts scene. We have been online continuously since then and have emerged as a global media outlet, recognized and fed by top tier talent agencies and emerging talent. Our readership spans the US, UK, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

In 2014, a line of Drunken Mermaid branded craft beers went into production, beginning with Drunken Mermaid IPA.

Drunken Mermaid was founded by Sean Develin, a Philadelphia lawyer who is best known for the Witchwood Park children’s books and a five act stage play, Dinner, Sex and Movie. Drunken Mermaid has received support through the years from co-owner, graphic artist and cartoonist Colin Develin, SAG actor Chris Davis, and novelist Richard “R.B.” Wood.
