Baltimore’s famous trash collecting water wheel, Mr. Trash Wheel, had a local beer named after him last year called Mr. Trash Wheel’s Lost Python Ale. Now, a trash wheel in Canton, Md., called Professor Trash Wheel, is getting his turn.
The new beer, a Belgian wheat beer called Professor Trash Wheel Blinded Me Wit Science, is produced by Peabody Heights Brewery and will be released on April 22, Earth Day. Part of the proceeds will go to the Waterfront Partnership’s Healthy Harbor Initiative.
Baltimore Sun has more information:
The beer — a 4.9 percent ABV Belgian-style wheat beer brewed with orange and lemon peel, and Cascade hops — was named after the 1982 hit song, “She Blinded Me with Science,” by Baltimore transplant and Johns Hopkins University professor Thomas Dolby, the release said.
It’s also a sequel to last year’s Mr. Trash Wheel’s Lost Python Ale, whose sales have led to $7,000 in support of Healthy Harbor, the release said.
Since May 2014, Mr. Trash Wheel has collected more than a million pounds of trash in the Inner Harbor. Professor Trash Wheel, a second collector, operates in Canton.
