We are for everyone.

Lupinus Artisan Ales’s purpose is to experiment, celebrate our humanity, bring up our community, and connect us.

About Lupinus

We are a Texas-based nomad brewery focused on kettle sours and high gravity Imperial Stouts. Our kettle sours are incorporated with fruit, spices/herbs, and hops. Our high gravity Imperial Stouts lean heavily on barrel-aging until perfection.

Our name is inspired by the Latin species for Bluebonnet [the state flower for Texas] Lupinus Texensis.

Lupinus Artisan Ales follows a culinary path of innovation, collaboration, and spontaneity. Being named after a Texas symbol that many people relate to, we strongly believe in bringing the community together through engagement and actively working on creating the opportunity for the people around us to have a chance for a good quality of life. We do this by engaging with local artists, small businesses, and companies to raise awareness of the culture around us and by helping those that are less fortunate. In addition, we will be donating a percentage of every batch made, going to various charities and organizations that benefit the good of the community and the people who are in it.
