Saturday: Mr. Trash Wheel's Lost Python Ale Launch Party

April 22

Mr. Trash Wheel, the anthropomorphized garbage-eating oyster-looking thing that sits at the mouth of the Jones Falls and collects all the crap floating in it, has been as busy as ever lately. Recently, a single rain storm let loose 106,480 pounds of trash—or 15 dumpsters worth—that Mr. Trash Wheel dutifully pulled out of the water and gobbled up. And somehow he still manages to keep up one of the most active and viral social media presences in the city—what a guy. Let us raise a glass to Mr. Trash Wheel for all his good work, and why not do it with a beer made by Peabody Heights to commemorate the very special time in 2015 when a real, live snake wound up in his innards. Mr. Trash Wheel's Lost Python Ale is a session IPA that will debut at a party at Peabody Heights' brewery, with music by Tongue in Cheek Jazz Band and Abu the Flutemaker. Attendees get as many pours of the beer as they desire and a pint glass with Mr. Trash Wheel's googly eyed visage on it, and a portion proceeds will go toward Mr. Trash Wheel's guardians at Healthy Harbor Initiative. Sixers and cases of the ale will also be available for sale, and why not, it's a good cause. 7-10:30 p.m., Peabody Heights Brewery, 401 E. 30th St., (410) 467-7837,, $30, at the door $35.
