You've got to be motherfucking kidding me.

If at home, I’ll be drinking some “good beer”- Sierra Nevada Bigfoot, Flying Dog Double Dog…anything high alcohol to get me through the game- as I am more interested in the beer than the game! However, since most places serve nothing but crap on tap, I just might head to The Libertine Bar and pray the beer gods will deliver more Jester King Black Metal Stout :)

what i WANT to drink during the Superbowl is an alesmith speedway stout and a Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot Barleywine. However due to antiquated Texas laws (im looking at YOU, TABC) that wont be happening. Hence therefore thusly ergo,i plan on having me a beerbowl: i'll be drinking leinenkugels sunset wheat, for wisconsin and, victory storm king stout for PA. and of course some st.arnolds winter stout, to represent the state hosting..and the winner is: ME!

This Superbowl I will be drinking whatever someone has extra of because I'm unemployed and am officially poor! However, if I had a choice it would have to be Magic Hats #9. The perfect 'not quite a pale ale' for the 'not quite sure I care who wins' attitude....Go Chicago Bears!!! p.s.- are y'all hiring?

I'll be having the same thing I have every postseason, Corona's on the beach in Cabo!

Since I'd rather go to this dinner than the Super Bowl just fork over the tics, bub!

First, I have to get myself right with the fact that the Cowboys blew their chances all to Hell. So, prior to the start of the game, I will shake up a coors Light as I jump around screaming jibberish like Keith Bookings. At the bottle empties, I reach for a can of Coors regular and pour out the Yellowbelly in honor of our departed Wade.

Moving into actual beer territory: I need something to make the artificial turf look like actual grass, so we're going strong and hard with a couple Dogfish head IPA 60's, back to back. This also helps me believe that Keyshawn Johnson's wardrobe actually matches.

Coin-flip time, and I see two teams without stars on their helmets, only IN them. At this point, a large Newcastle, because it goes so well with lost hope and indignation.

Rothlisberger takes the field, signalling my first Rohypnol, in preparation of date-raping myself as the monochromatically t-shirted "fans" take the field for the halftime show. It should be kicking by then. Warsh down with another Newcastle.

I need to finish this Dogfish Head, so I take a drink every time Troy Aikman issues a superfluous "what." This goes exceedingly well, and by mid-2nd Quarter I'm convinced that the video board over the field is a TV inside my TV. Does that make me a Redneck?

As the 2-minute warning sounds, I see Mike Tomlin slip into the locker room to change into his chain-mail Onesie and assume his alter ego as Will.i.am - - wow, Tomlin doesn't even wear glasses, how did he pull that shit off for so long?

I spend the entire halftime show with my back to the TV bonging lite keg beer like Frank the Tank. Someone turns me around as the third quarter begins.

After a 5-hour energy and a faceful of nachos, I settle in for a great 2nd half with a huge bottle of Duvel and a wheel of cheese. Hours later, I wake up to learn that I just watched the Pro Bowl.

Every Superbowl Sunday, since 2002, I drink a 40oz of Shlitz Malt Liquor. My first date with my wife was at a Superbowl party in college where we drank this. Best part, it was her idea. I now drink one every year to commemorate the event. There's MUCH better beer out there, but for me, nothing is better than a Shiltz during the game.

As I was unable to attend, I have a team member from Vermont in New Orleans this week for work. That said, I am craving Abita. I think the SOS (Save Our Shores) or Andygator would be appropriate for this special occasion.

Shiner Black, because I don't like drinking swill, but it's still affordable and readily available.

I don't care about football, so I root for the best uniform colors. Since they both have yellow, the choice is easy: Mama's Little Yella Pils by Oskar Blues! Go Yellow!

I won't be able to make it down there by 7, but fwiw I'll be drinking a bottle of Chimay blue, because it's been in my fridge for months, and why the hell not.

In a city such as Dallas, aesthetics are always of the utmost importance – a truth that will not be lost upon my choice of carbonated libation during Super Bowl XLV. One’s choice of chalice is thus just as vital as their choice of drink – a combination I aim to lock down in such magnificence that my favored team’s odds of winning just may exponentially increase upon my first sip. So allow me first to say that, given my options, I’m throwing my weight in with the Steelers (thank Wiz Khalifa for swaying my allegiance). Black and yellow: their colors; the proletariat: their blood. These things considered, the choice of Super Bowl beer becomes immediately clear – Steel Reserve Black. The name of this beer alone begs it to be imbibed by any self-respecting possessor of a Terrible Towel. Further, the drink itself, so clearly anti-bourgeoisie, elicits the very ethos of the Steeler nation – blue collars painted thick in black and yellow. The drink must be drunk however, and only remains Steeler-true, within a vessel as gold as the helmets that adorn each player – a chalice of faux-bullion forged by the legacy of the NFL’s most esteemed organization (and preferably purchased at exceedingly low cost). Black and yellow: the aesthetic and symbolic depth of my drink a powerful statement to all that might stand in the way of both my party’s chicken wings and the Steeler’s road to victory.

While the Packers have the ball, I'll be tipping back Pabst Blue Ribbon. The "Working Man's Beer" for the "Working Man's Team".

When the Steelers have it, I'll no doubt be raising a glass of Stone's Arrogant Bastard in honor of Big Ben Roethelisberger, who I would unofficially claim is the brew's namesake.
