This cool beer will be available at local beer retailers next month, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported.At 5.3 percent alcohol, the SuperEIGHT gose is an offbeat beer made with these key ingredients: boysenberry, blackberry, elderberry, mango, prickly pear, kiwi juices, a small amount of quinoa, and some Hawaiian sea salt. It has a vibrant red hue and has a “slightly tart taste and refreshing finish,” according to Dogfish Head.“We’re comin’ at ya with so much juicy flavor with the latest release of our new Gose, SuperEIGHT,” Dogfish Head founder and CEO Sam Calagione said in the blog post. “With the meteoric success of SeaQuench Ale growing to be the best selling sour beer in America, we learned from consumers that approachable, refreshing, super-flavorful beers are what they’re seeking when making choices about beverages. We’re listening, we heard you, and we think you’re going to love our wildly delicious SuperEIGHT.”Last year, Calagione appeared on an episode of Kodak’s podcast “The Kodakery” to talk about “analog processes in the digital age.” Calagione discovered that the heightened levels of acidity and vitamin C in certain types of beer could also be used as a processing agent for some films. The company said the SuperEIGHT beer was created to specifically process Kodak Super 8 film.“Early batches of the beer were sent to Kodak to begin development,” said the Dogfish Head blog post. “After a series of tests were done, they successfully proved that SuperEIGHT can in fact act as a film developer.”To celebrate the beer’s debut, Calagione is planning a port-to-port boat trip up the East Coast this summer and will document his adventures on Kodak Super 8 film. The footage will be developed in SuperEIGHT beer and turned into a short movie. More details on the epic trip will be disclosed in April.More on Geek.com:Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Inspired a BeerFinally, Someone Made a Beer That Tastes Like Lucky CharmsA Brewery Is Making Beer From Rejected Corn Flakeslast_img
