Imagine: It's Super Bowl Sunday. The bean dip is made, the chips are looking joyous in their bowl, the distinct odor of deep-fried chicken wings is in the air. The table is set. But, what are you going to drink?

Forget the Bud Light. Don't even think about Pabst. You're going to need something much stronger to get through this game.

Founders' Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale will do the trick. This thick, dark red brew is crafted with seven varieties of imported hops and has a malty richness that perfectly complements the swift kick of hops it delivers. It's as strong in international bitterness units (50) as it is in alcohol by volume. At a whopping 8.5 percent you'll only need a couple of these bad boys to make it through.
