Charleywine sounds delicious!!!
I thought of you immediately when I read those labels!
Been in the club before but just signed up again. Excited about this round and love the smaller bottles! How do we find out what the dedicated members-only tap or bottle pour in the Cigar City Brewing Tasting Room is? Do you find out when you show up on any given day or is it posted somewhere?
so basically we know what the whole round is now. * for keg collar and not label approval
Element of Reverence: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with Pineapple and Coconut
Sacred Ceremonies: Cognac Barrel-Aged Barleywine-Style Ale
Primordial Unity: Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout
Spiritual Needs: Rye Barrel-aged Imperial Stout with Buckwheat and Rye
*Journeywork of the Stars: Bourbon Barrel-aged Scotch Ale and Cherry Brandy Barrel-aged Barleywine Ale Blend with Cacao Nibs
*Cosmic Collision: Sauternes Barrel-aged Wheatwine Ale
Charleywine Ale: calvados and rye barrel aged barleywine
Pretty Barleywine heavy this round if this is the case. Not even going to break my top 5 El Cat rounds with that lineup.
Could keg collar approvals be special El Cat taps?? Maybe they're filling one off barrels to blend and put out for members. Just a thought.
Cigar City specifically called out a mix of "stouts & barleywines". Not sure what you were expecting! Three barleywines & a wheatwine & three stouts would be fantastic for this guy.
Original email says “healthy mixture of both.” I guess the healthier side went toward the non stout items. Not a fan of Wheatwine but maybe this will help change my perspective.
Barleywine is such a polarizing style. I’ll drink them, but I much prefer stouts. Saying this round looks like it will be not a top 5 el cat round doesn’t mean anyone wasn’t expecting barleywines. It just means out of 12 el cat rounds 5 rounds were better based off the lineup.
I will say that I like the sound of the barrels used for these beers. A lot of interesting selections for the Barleywines. Might make me a believer after all.
Anyone making any trips to Cigar City soon and willing to pick up my round 11 beers and ship to CA? My usual trustee is not going to be able to do it. Will cover shipping and send thank you beers.
Sent you a pm
no asterisk on those, the labels came out. These are the confirmed 7 bottles unless there is an unforeseen issue.
I thought there was a comment about a return of some El Cat favorite beers from prior rounds in the original email. I guess I was hoping for DB Huna to show its beautiful face again. The beers still sound amazing and I love the bottle art that I’ve seen so far.
In the letter to everyone about the 12th edition they didn't specifically say that there would be beers from prior El Cat rounds, but did say there would be "some familiar releases that reflect back to the brewery's earlier days"
This may have been covered but does anyone have a picture/mock up of the glass we are getting this round? Just curious.
Hi all, looking to be a first time member. Just to confirm, I can have a family member (designated as trustee) pick up all 14 beers at one time, and it just needs to happen within 30 days on the 7th release?
Here's the last couple labels. This is looking like a phenomenal round.
Probably some of my favorite label art so far for catclub
Got an email from el cat. Special announcement today at 5pm via cc instagram
Got the same wishing me a Happy Tuesday (it's now Thurs)
Happy Tuesday Members!
We have an exciting announcement coming your way this evening. Make sure to check out our Instagram @cigarcitybrewing post shortly after 5 PM today. I think you will enjoy this special news. More details to come.
Have a fun and safe holiday weekend.
Tuesday Thursday time is irrelevant in 2020.
CHOP Daylight Savings Time?
You must be a cockeyed optimist, that would make too much sense.
5:30 and nothing. Never change CCB
Haha. I did notice the last post they did was on Tuesday, wonder if they were supposed to send the email out on Tues instead of Thurs
it would honestly be great if they never posted anything
Not off to a great start this round. Maybe they should just stick with emails?
It’s incredible to think how people can hype a Instagram post and literally forget an hour later
Great comments in here.
I have an incredible comment that I will post shortly after 5:30. Watch for it
Well that was slightly disappointing
left me sitting on nins and peedles.
I hope it is 20-25 per bottle and not 30-35. I could see the money grab though.
I’m hoping for $25 a bottle as well.
Very nice perk though
im gonna go with zero chance it’s under 30 but I’m a pessimist
I dont have instagram, someone fill me in one the big announcement
