    You know you could just keep the membership yourself and put him as the trustee?

    Dear John emails are in

    Good Afternoon,

    Unfortunately, you have not been selected in this edition’s lottery. Don’t fret, every edition that you are not selected in the lottery, you receive a weighted value that gives you a greater chance at being selected in the next edition.

    If you were not selected in this edition's lottery, please continue to check your email for club updates. If there are openings available after Friday, we will conduct another lottery.

    We truly appreciate your interest!

    I'm curious if any of the people selected will just end up not paying. I can't imagine anyone would, and if so I think it will most likely be a very small number. On to round 5 for me....

    First time trying to get in, and... Denied! Do I have to wait until next year to try, or is it a quarterly club. I think I've read conflicting info.

    (Total newbs over here BTW)

    it's whenever the 5 bottles are released, could be a month, could be a year, could be longer or shorter...

    How does it work with setting a trustee?

    Still confused by this post. Who's being penalized? Why couldn't your buddy renew his membership?
    Did he miss the 10,000 email reminders?!

    On your account page, there is a line to add the trustee's email address. They must have a registered account at CCB Store online, and have selected the "I would like to be a trustee" checkbox.

    did they state somewhere that DB Huna will be available to members? I believe it has been in the past but everything I've seen says they make no promises as to what will be available.

    Aside from the 5 BA bottles, what other bottles were offered for purchase in the past? Are they able to be purchased online, or is it on site only?
  17. Jdub2839

    No extra bottles were offered in round 3, round 1 & 2 there were

    Extra bottles originally were done lottery style but the past 2 editions they've been available upon sign up for the next edition. Rd 3 was da un beso and this rd it was Hapax legomenon. They were option at additional cost and first come first serve. Ordered online and pickup at brewery along with the other 5 bottles, anytime before end of club. But there is no guarentee that there will be additional bottles. In rd 3 they had their first onsite party/bottle share for a first come first serve ticket purchase. So they are still adding/trying different stuff. So who knows.

    Finally get to join the El cat club! Been a huge fan of CCB since getting into craft beer. Plus figure its a good excuse to plan a quick vacation to Tampa to pick up my bottles and check out what else new has popped up over the last 3 years since I was down there. Cheers all.

    Is there still an El Catador Club section in the CCB store anymore? It's not showing when I log into the store as it did before.

    Just tried one of my Trousseau bottles, very tasty indeed. Nice Madeira Barrel-aged Barley Wine , but I think the Angry Chair barrel aged Barley wine is better. But I like thick, sweet things. :slight_smile:

    I don't see an El Cat section either. But in my order history it has a record of my renewal transaction. And I also have an order ready for pickup that has the glass, card, and 2 bottles of Trousseau.

    They probably did away with the El Cat section, I dont see it either.

    Log in and then go to My Account/Reorder and all the El Cat stuff is there
  33. Jdub2839

    Jdub2839 Pundit (758) Mar 15, 2014 Florida

    We are referring to the section where you could buy the extra El Cat stuff such as glassware and extra bottles when available
  34. Mangbus

    Mangbus Initiate (0) Aug 25, 2014 Florida

    They may not have any product in that section right now so the section does not appear.

    Ok thx for the replies. I definitely renewed and have received my confirmation emails for pickup. Just wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong or if the section just isn't in the store. From the replies it seems that the section just isn't there.

    Can you guys tell me what the confirmation email after purchase looks like? I purchased it on 7/7 but got an email today saying that I needed to purchase it by tonight or I forfeit my spot. :slight_frown: So now I'm thinking it didn't go through

    I continued to get the reminder email after I signed up. You should be fine. Check your cc statement. If you got the charge you are good to go.

    Trouseau is very meh... Very easy drinking, especially for a bw, which is not my thing. There is almost no barrel though and the port flavor is very light in flavor but strong in the nose.
