Kodak said a new beer hitting the market can be used to develop its Super 8 movie film.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Delaware created its ‘SuperEIGHT’ beer after a conversation with people at Kodak, the upstate New York technology company most famous for its photographic roots.

Dogfish learned from Kodak that heightened levels of acidity and vitamin C in certain beers could make them a processing agent for the film.

That inspired the brewery to design such a beer, and Kodak helped by testing it out. 

Dogfish founder Sam Calagione said he’ll document his summer travels on the Super 8 film that will be developed in ‘SuperEIGHT’ beer and turned into a short film.

The beer is made with:

  • pear
  • mango
  • berries
  • kiwi
  • quinoa
  • salt 

The SuperEIGHT beer is set for national distribution next month.
