I’ve Got it BADD on the Hop Press


This week on my Hop Press column over at RateBeer.com, I take a bit of time to talk about BADD – Beer Attention Deficit Disorder.

BADD isn’t anything you’ll find on the DSM-IV, although most beer geeks are probably already familiar with it. It is a problem I’ve struggled with more and more as I’ve moved into the world of beer enthusiasts. If you aren’t yet aware of BADD, it is essentially an aversion to drinking a beer – especially a beer you’re familiar with – for too long. Symptoms include an overwhelming thirst for the unknown and untasted, a wanderlust to get new brews, and, distressingly, a lack of interest in familiar brews.
