We craft beers of balance and celebrate the small, unassuming sources that create large-scale positive change – the trim tab. Boom.
Whats a trim tab you say? Look no further than the words of a genius published in a 1972 Playboy…..
“Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary [an ocean liner]— the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there's a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab. It's a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. Society thinks it's going right by you, that it's left you all together. But if you're doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go. So I said, call me Trim Tab.”
– Buckminster Fuller (Playboy, February 1972)
