I have processed film after marinating myself in beer. It did not work out well for the photos. But it was a hell of a party.

But seriously (not really) you have given me a great excuse for buying several cases of brewski's..."Honey, honestly I just have a backlog of old 35mm rolls to process". I can see that working (not).

I can recall developing a roll of Panatomic-X in beer long ago. It came out pretty well!
(ahmmm, was it beer in the development tank, D-76 in my stomach? I cannot remember clearly as I had a fuzzy head after the beer I had before developing it)

During 1991-1994, I would have been geeking out for this... at the height of my experimenting in the darkroom. Cool, but now I`m only interested in drinking it.

Beer is for baby hipsters.
Wine is for matured hipsters.

If beer is a decent developer, why don't we hear more about how it's a great health drink due to antioxidant properties? The two properties are the same; only a few other, less healthy properties have been keeping health nuts from putting Rodinal in green smoothies.

Actually, you cannot develop film in coffee, meaning real coffee. Those back-alley formulas specify using instant coffee, because the developing agent is one of the residual chemicals left over from the process of turning coffee into "instant".

having seen this, i wonder why nobody has made disposable packets or cans with pre-mixed chemistry that you can use when you're just too lazy to mix your own

I brew my own beer but I find per-packaged developers are far cheaper for developing film. Now I wonder how XTOL tastes?

Well, Ilford did recently release their Simplicity line of developing products:
https://www.ilfordphoto.com/simplicity-starter-pack

Some folks panned it, but I think it has its uses. Perhaps for a beginner who wants to try out DIY development without a lot of initial investment, or for a more experienced photographer who wants to develop a few rolls while out on the road.

I must be getting old. When we were kids we had to eat tide powder out of the box!

Seriously, there's some anecdotal chatter on "Another Network" by some who have done B&W developing in plain old beer-beer, not something supposedly formulated to do it.
