Huma Lupa Licious

Imperial India Pale Ale

This is the quintessential Short’s Brew, incapable of truly fitting into a specific style, Huma is big in every way it can be: big on bitterness, big on malt backbone, big on piney waves of citrus and wildflowers. This is Joe Short’s favorite beer, the first beer he poured at the Pub and the last beer we all pick up at the end of a hard day’s work or play.

Origin Story

Based off a homebrewing recipe that Joe called Humulius Lupulius Maximus. Started as Joe's quest for the perfect IPA. Huma Lupa Licious is a beer of firsts here at Short’s. Originally brewed on 4/30/2004 and simply labeled as “IPA”, Huma Lupa Licious was the first pint of beer officially sold at the pub. In 2006, Huma was the first Short’s mainstay to be bottled in Bellaire, and for many, Huma Lupa Licious is their first introduction to an India Pale Ale of such complexity. Huma, best described by its tagline “A complex hop and malt theme park in your mouth,” boasts not one, not two, but FIVE distinct hop varieties. You can find this beer on tap, in bottles, and filling pint glasses at the pub 365 days a year.
