Elk Rapids, Mich. – Family owned Short’s Brewing Company, known for producing fearlessly creative beers in the hinterlands of Northern, MI, has found themselves abreast a recent political scandal involving popular flagship IPA, Huma Lupa Licious®.

Over the past week, Short’s Brewing Company has received thousands of emails and phone calls about Huma’s involvement in the FBI investigation that led to the discovery of new emails potentially related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.

Recent quotes from GOP candidate Donald Trump: “Thank you, Huma. Good job, Huma” have put Huma at the center of this heated political debacle.


Short’s Brewing Co.’s CEO, Joe Short was available for comment, “The implication that Huma was involved in anything but tasting really good, is totally false. I totally see why Hillary picked Huma for her assistant though. Huma has assisted me for years, and I stand by it!”

Short’s also went on to add that it is a bipartisan company, and prefers to stay politically neutral, although highly encourages everyone to actively and thoughtfully participate in our elections.

The Real Huma®

Huma Lupa Licious® (7.7% ABV – 96 IBU) Huma Lupa Licious’ name derives from the hop plant, Humulus lupulus. It is brewed with five different hop varieties: Centennial, Columbus, Chinook, Cascade, and Palisade. Huma is known for having an intense bitterness that is balanced by a rich malty flavor. A citrus and floral aroma complements the unique qualities of Short’s flagship India Pale Ale.

Huma Lupa Licious is the product of Joe Short wanting to create the ultimate IPA experience. Originally, Huma Lupa Licious was named Humulus Lupulus Maximus, and went through several recipe changes before settling on the recipe we know and love today.
