Why this word?

I have a (possibly) unhealthy affection for beer. It’s even better, knowing that the stuff is actually pretty damned good for you, after all (when drunk in moderation, of course. The old warning of “you can have too much of a good thing” is, unfortunately, very true.)

But, if there’s one thing I cannot stand, it is warm beer. Like, a warm dark lager? Might as well scoop up a mug full of mud and give it to me from the ground outside; the taste wouldn’t be any different. Actually, this counts for any warm, potable alcohol– Give me a glass of snowbroth so chilled, little vapor tendrils instantly spring into the air around it as it sits.

Snowbroth, or none at all.

How to use the word snowbroth in a sentence?

“Snowbroth outside had left frozen him during his walk– but then, later that evening, snowbroth of an entirely different sort burned him from the inside out.”
