Opening Fall 2019

Fund the Food

Help us raise the final funds we need to open our shop by purchasing meals, classes and butchery items in advance. Funders will receive first priority for classes, meals, and our coveted monthly butcher’s box.

The Beasts

Beast & Cleaver is family-owned butcher shop in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood focused on whole animal, artisanal butchery.

Our work is a celebration of flavor. It’s why we partner with local farms, work with whole animals, and always stay curious about food sources and what we can do to make every meal delicious.

Count on us for all of your traditional cuts of meat as well as pre-made specialty items such as sausages, pate, dry-aged beef, and charcuterie. We’ll also offer butchery classes, lunch service, and weekly Saturday dinners for 10 people.

We look forward to celebrating quality, sustainable meat and sharing the crafts of butchery and cookery with all of you.

The Cleaver

Beast & Cleaver is made possible by the talents of Kevin Smith. An Englishman turned Seattleite, he brings a distinctly European aesthetic and whole animal discipline to the unique bounty of the Northwest. He has worked for Rain Shadow Meats, The Butcher’s Table, and Seven Beef.

Keep up with Kevin

Help us meet our goal!
