In 2018, Dogfish Head’s founder, Sam Calagione, appeared on a Kodak podcast where he learned that beers with high acidity and vitamin C could be used to process film. At the same time, the brewery was underway working on a beer with a similar ingredient profile. Call it a happy accident.
Dogfish Head sent early batches of the beer over to Kodak to ensure they could successfully develop Super8 film which, evidently, it can.
Peak Dogfish Head...for now.
