Delaware craft brewery Dogfish Head has teamed up with Kodak to create SuperEIGHT, an analog-inspired Super Gose beer designed specifically to develop film.

Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, was recording an episode of The Kodakery, a podcast created by Kodak, when he learned that with the right levels of acidity and vitamin C, it would be possible to create a beer capable of developing film. Coincidentally enough, the research and development team at Dogfish was already working on a beer with properties that would align perfectly with those needed for developing film, and so SuperEIGHT was born.

After further developing the 'super-refreshing, sessionable Super Gose,' the Dogfish Head team sent a few batches over to Kodak for testing and sure enough, it worked. The resulting footage, seen in sample footage above, isn't nearly as impressive as dedicated developers, but for a beer we'd say it's pretty darn impressive. Kodak and Dogfish Head even shared a recipe for the development, which can be downloaded and printed off.

As for the beer itself, SuperEIGHT has an alcohol content of 5.3% and 'is made with eight heroic ingredients including prickly pear, mango, boysenberry, blackberry, raspberry, elderberry, kiwi juices and a touch of quinoa, along with an ample addition of Hawaiian sea salt.'

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery will start shipping six packs of 355ml (12 fl oz) cans in April 2019.
