    so i got this email as well, but didn't get any email about winning the wait list lottery for el cat. Did everyone who's on the wait list get this? or (hopefully :rolling_eyes:) does this mean i somehow can't find the el cat signup email but maybe did get in (I'm assuming no).

    DB Huna is not guaranteed for round 6 and is pretty unlikely. Of the previous 5 editions, DB Huna was only featured in two of them.

    Also, the first time it was released, everyone got an opportunity to buy an extra one, there was enough to go around and then some. The latest release I think there were something like 500 extra bottles available, so you had to act fast to get one.

    You have to add their email to you El Catador account and that's it. You need a trustee?

    you get 5 barrel aged bottles at random. you will not know what they are until they are annouced. you are entitled to nothing else other than the 10% off at the tasting room and the "gift" they give you. Anything else is a bonus and should not be expected.

    DB Huna is not something you should expect or even anticipate.

    All you are entitled to is 5 BA beers. That means you could have just bought 5 BA sours; you just do not know, will you know until they're released.

    Yes. It's fine. Not something I'd have ever sought out or bought in life.

    The bottle is actually a Wakefield 32oz growler. So there is so room for more than just a 750ml bottle. The other compartment actually has a divider which looks like it would allow for 2 cans or maybe even a can and a 12oz bottle. Haven't tested it yet.

    Overall...better than the "bar set" but I'd have rather had another glass or a shirt.

    Not bad, not great. I'll get more use out of this than from another glass or shirt. Better than the bar set for sure.

    Any wild speculations for the bottles this round (beside AB huna which we all heard has been in bottles for over a year at this point.)

    I've been wanting to get in since my buddies and I came up short in round 1 in 2013 (or whatever year that was). Just got an email to finally get in for round 6...and I don't even know if I want to do it. Hmmm...

    the way i look at this is, it'll be fun to have an excuse to hit Tampa for a weekend and pick up my beer's. Will i stay in for all the rounds? Depends on how this edition is but generally I'm a fan of the beer I've had from CCB. FWIW looking at the last round, I'm really curious about Hard Sauce ha. Just have a 1 bottle membership. Looking forward to it.

    The thing is if you're expecting great things you'll probably be let down, but if you just like to drink different good beer you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Greetings friends! Finally made it in after a few years of trying. Crossing my fingers for AB huna!

    are the bottles usually all released together or spread out over time?

    The releases are spread out over time, but you can wait and pick them all up at once if you choose after the last bottle has been released. You have 30 days to pick up after last bottle is released.

    so I have a question. I signed up for the lottery for el cat 5. but never saw an opportunity to sign up for el cat 6. did I just get lumped into that lottery or did i have to sign up again somewhere and I never saw an email / update on their website / social media?

    thanks

    Once you entered the lottery you're in for future rounds as well...puts you essentially on a waiting list going forward

    Also they had mentioned a weighted calculation that makes your odds better every lottery.

    I'm wondering at this point if CCB is struggling to get 1500 members for this round.
