He joins current DuClaw brewers Jim Wagner and Bo Lenck, and will be in charge of brewing, cellaring, and filtering the craft beer as well as prepping the beer for packaging.
"I am proud to welcome Krol to our DuClaw brewing team," commented Dave Benfield, founder and president of DuClaw.

I read elsewhere that he did the label art for Big DIPA and some others in the Heavy Seas line, and I believe he also did the Baltimore Beer Week crab logo used this year.
