In Baltimore’s frustrating, worthwhile fight to keep trash and human waste out of city streets, parks and waterways, local breweries are stepping up to support the cause. Peabody Heights made its mark in the last couple years with two smartly branded brews to benefit the Healthy Harbor Initiative. And Southeast Baltimore’s Monument City Brewing is following suit this summer and fall, starting today with the release of a new double IPA–the first in a series of three–raising money for Trash Free Maryland and Blue Water Baltimore.

This one, Waterways, is a sturdy 8.5 percent ABV West Coast-style double IPA that should get you buzzing straightaway at tonight’s release party in Baltimore Highlands. It’s the first in the Haven series, a trio of double IPAs named for local natural and urban resources. The second, Greenways, will premiere in September, and the third, Roadways, will debut in October, according to the brewery’s Instagram.

Volunteers from Blue Water Baltimore and Trash Free Maryland will be on-site at tonight’s release promoting a citywide cleanup on Sept. 8. Old Line Spirits will also be there with whiskey samples, and Baltimore Crab Cake Company will bring its crustacean fare.

5-10 p.m., Monument City Brewing, 1 N. Haven St., (443) 529-8131, Facebook event.
