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

    Dogfish Head Craft Brewery of 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 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.
