Wouldn't a 14-barrel batch be the equivalent of 434 gallons, with a barrel of beer being defined as 31 gallons in the US?
Definitely keeping an eye out for this beer. Saw it on a beer list somewhere last year and couldn't believe they actually brewed with oysters - I hadn't heard of an oyster stout before that. Now we have two to look forward to every year - COAST's and Holy City's.
Would it not be more reasonable to consider the habit of smoking more of a choice than the decision to not smoke? Everyone opposed to smoking bans makes it sound as if smoking is a natural way of life, but I would argue against that. If you choose to smoke, so be it - but it should be up to YOU to accommodate your decision to smoke. Why should restaurants, bars, and the vast numbers of non-smokers conform to your habit? When I choose to go to a bar or restaurant, I must wine and dine as as a smoker against my own will. If a smoker chooses to light up in the middle of a bar, restaurant, or other public space, he not only chooses to smoke for himself, but he also forces his habit upon any non-smokers who might be attempting to enjoy themselves nearby. Smokers can always escape the fresh air of a non-smoking establishment to feed their habit, but the non-smokers don't enjoy the same freedom. The truth of it is that smoking itself is invasive, and I'm a little tired of those who choose to smoke whining about how they are entitled to force their habit upon me anytime I choose to leave my home.
