We like beer. A lot. St. Louis has exploded with world class craft breweries, keeping fans of hops, malts and the magical things that happen when they are combined very, very happy. The Shaved Duck is proud to be a go-to spot in the Lou for local craft beers, while also boasting impressive selections from the rest of America's thriving artisan beer scene. With four rotating tap handles and dozens of bottles beauties, you are sure to find something you like.. and a lot of things you probably don't know you like. We want to challenge your palate.. and at the end of the day, nothing goes better with good BBQ than good beers. Here are some examples of beers we carry, have carried and probably will again. Keep in mind that our current menu may not reflect what you see below. We carry a great number of seasonals and special releases that rotate on an almost weekly basis...
4 Hands "Contact High" 20 oz.
Generously hopped wheat ale, does not bogart the bong
2nd Shift "Brew Cocky" 16oz
The naughtiest IPA in Saint Louis! Get in touch with your perverse side
Uinta "Baba" Organic Black Lager 20 oz.
Easy drinking, but with a malty depth that makes you seem more interesting because you are drinking it
Modern "Lou-Dog" 20 oz.
"We took this trip to Garden Grove..." You know the rest
Bud/Bud Light
Apple Knocker "Hard Knocks" Cider 22oz
Oak barrel fermented with Belgian yeast, dry and delicious

Flavorful, easy pilsner made in the traditional Czech manner
Shiner "White Wing"

A bit out of the downtown area, but worth the trip out. Great BBQ sauces (unique flavors). Best shrimp and grits I’ve ever had. Staff is friendly and relaxed. Four of us all had excellent meals and very inexpensive, great for a business lunch spot.

We have pulled pork and chicken which was great and had Cornbread with honey butter which was fantastic! Had guitar folk singer that was nice. Service slow from ordering to checking out though which was why we did not give it 5 stars.
