The Shepherd & the Knucklehead, aka “The Shep,” is our family-owned business with two pubs in New Jersey with one of the widest craft beer selections in the tristate area. Our original Haldon pub was established in 1998 and is run by our owner Chris Schiavo. Located in Hoboken, our family’s second pub was established in 2016 and is headed up by Chris’s son, Joe Schiavo. Our unique name describes the duality which makes humans complex and is also the title of a book, written by Chis, in 2001. Our goal is for a wide variety of patrons to enjoy excellent beer and food! We also enjoy giving back to our community and support charities both locally and globally. We hope to welcome you soon to one of our locations!
