I had a moment to reflect on a home brewing project I undertook with two good friends in College. We named the company Three Chief Brewing Company, after the fact. Why? Well we were three chiefs, each with our own ideas, mindsets and beliefs about how the brew should be made, what ingredients it should have, how long it should ferment, and how long it should stay in the bottle. We were all concerned with the minutia of making beer. We all wanted our signature to be preserved in the bottle. We each thought that we did all the work while our counterparts (the other chiefs) were only concerned with their personal visions of the perfect beer and not the practicalities of cleaning bottles and doing the dishes. Pretty stupid and yet a contagious thought process.
Was the beer any good? Heck yeah, it was a tasty brew. It's just that in the end we realized that Three Chiefs is way too many.
