MILTON, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A Sussex County brewery is teaming up with Kodak to produce a beer that can develop movie film.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton 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 film. That inspired the brewery to design such a beer. Kodak helped by testing it.

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

The beer, made with pear, mango, berries, kiwi, quinoa and salt, is set for national distribution next month.

Editor's note: The owner of Dogfish Head is associated with the ownership of WBOC's Draper holdings.
