How to use "Beer potomania" in context?
Beer potomania is a disorder that is characterized by an obsessive interest in beer. People with beer potomania may become so enamored with beer that they develop an abnormal obsession with it. They may spend hours upon hours looking for beers to drink, or worse, may consume an excessive amount of beer.
The origins of beer potomania are unknown, but it seems to have first appeared in the late 1800s. At that time, beer was becoming increasingly popular and there were not enough beers to go around. People with beer potomania obsessively hunted for beers, even going so far as to break into breweries and steal them.
