Kodak and Delaware-based brewery Dogfish Head collaborated on a beer with a pH capable of developing Kodak Super 8 film, dubbing the brew "analog beer for a digital age"

Even hardcore photographers might not know that, with the right pH, beer can be used to develop film. That fact inspired Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of brewery brand Dogfish Head, to create such a beverage.

The beer name is teaming up with Kodak photography company to create Super Eight, a beer with a low enough pH to make it viable for use in the film development process. The beer is 5.3% ABV and has eight main ingredients including prickly pear, mango, boysenberry, blackberry, raspberry, elderberry, kiwi and toasted quinoa with red Hawaiian sea salt.

Next month, Kodak will be releasing instructions on how to use the beer to develop photos. On top of this collaboration, the two are creating a film along with the Nature Conservancy, celebrating the history and culture of the city of Philadelphia. Watch the preview for it below:
