The rest of the DuClaw Brewing Company staff, from Creative to Distribution, works together with Dave and the brewers from the conception of the name to the branding and product launch, to create a unique image and identity for each and every new beer, with Dave’s original mantra still the only guiding principal: Make it cool.
