Belgian contribution to the hobby :-)


I haven't tasted it, so far.

This would go well with the Jamaican beer Red (magnetic) Stripe.

It could make focusing difficult...even without a projector!

4.8% is too slow speed for me and those lenses look really long shot Dominique.

How about some (Bell &) Howe(ll) Sound:
Howe Sound
Canadian Company. They have some good running speeds. [Smile]

Hi Dominique,
I have it at my house... A nice dry beer

Posted by Clyde Miles (Member # 4032) on October 26, 2017, 03:39 PM:
most likely tastes reel nice.

Very vintage bottle!

How about this?

However, I see that the ratio is given as '8:1:1' - what an odd screen size!

Then there's this:

Or some dubious film cleaner:

Like the Beer, Wet'n'Wild:

Or maybe for Jaws:

I am old school and am happy sticking with Standard 8 Beer.

Don't forget the chain of super 8 motels.

-Been there!

Not an inch of film in sight! [Wink]

-The Ocean Holiday in Wildwood: now that's a Super-8 Motel!

In Britain I'd suggest Scribbler's Brewery "One Brew over the Cuckoo's Nest" and Great Oakley's "Titfield Thunderbolt".

There are also a couple of "Reel Ales" one only brewed for a local cinema.

also available is a 16mm version tastes like vinegar
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on November 02, 2017, 09:58 AM:
Santé, Alexander ;-)

Melvin, there is also a green version (the difference is that the green one is stronger) :-)

Some super 8 signs…

I can't stop laughing at those witty remarks above.

Nigel Higgins your one had me had me in stitches.

Very funny indeed so much so i have now lost both my top and bottom loops and perforated my sides. [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Smile] [Smile] [Smile]

Of course that green one is NOT the sort of IPA you can clean films with. And if you drink too much of it you may find it hard to focus the projector :-)

May the super8 title live on!

I remember at last years Blackpool Convention dinner Dominique was kind
enough to carry a case of super 8 beer all the way from Belgium and donate it as one of the prizes for the raffle, it went down well with the guests, especially the lucky winner thanks Dom...
Posted by Dominique De Bast (Member # 3798) on June 30, 2019, 04:01 PM:
Thanks for remembering it, David. The Blackpool Convention certainly deserves support from all of us [Smile]

If you're looking for something a touch healthier, a spot in New York's Central Park sells a similarly titled fruit juice.


Personally, I would rather have the beer.

Make mine a good cream liquor! [Smile]
Posted by Leon Norris (Member # 3151) on July 01, 2019, 01:12 PM:
I wonder were they got the name from and why it was chosen?
Posted by Lee Mannering (Member # 728) on July 02, 2019, 12:23 AM:
Dom Don't forget to bring me a S8 Export over [Wink]
