Ok, I have signed up and paid.  When does the club begin?

Typically the club first offers current members the ability to renew their membership within a modest window.  Then any available space is opened up to the general public and previous members for period of time. Once the general public window is closed or memberships are sold out (whichever comes first), we will notify all members with the start date for their discount.


I can no longer pick up my beer, what can I do?

If you can not pick up your beer, you can assign a trustee to get it for you.


How do I assign a trustee?

There are two (2) steps to making this happen.  First, your trustee must create an account using their name as it appears on their government issued ID and with a valid email address. Once they are registered, you can use the email they registered with to designate them as your trustee. Please visit our Trustee page for more details.


Can I use my El Catador Club discount at other tasting rooms?

The El Catador Club discount is currently only valid at the Cigar City Brewing Tasting Room in Tampa, FL and Oskar Blues Tasting Room in Boulder, CO.
Discount is not available at the Tampa International Airport location.


Will you be offering other locations for El Catador pickups?

At this time, the only two (2) locations available are Cigar City Brewing Tasting Room in Tampa, FL and Oskar Blues Tasting Room in Boulder, CO.  That said, we are always evaluating and trying to find more ways for members to easily pick up their club beers.


I no longer want to be in the club, can I get a refund?

We are sorry to see you go!  Since the club is not auto renewing at this time, per the terms of the agreement there are no refunds (full or partial) of club membership fees or any additional items purchased while in the club.  If you don’t mind, we would appreciate hearing from you on why you are choosing to not renew. You can reach us at club@cigarcitybrewing.com.


I have a great idea for the club.  How do I tell you about it?

We love hearing from club members on ways we can improve your experience.  You can contact us HERE, or send an email to us at club@cigarcitybrewing.com.


I want to be a member. How do I join?

We open enrollment approximately two weeks after the last bottle drops for a period of about a month. This time line and time frame is not set in stone and fluctuates based on retention of members and available spots. Go HERE and sign up to be one of the first to know when we open up.
