About Us

Beast & Cleaver is a family-owned butcher shop and restaurant in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood dedicated to using local, sustainable, organic meat.

Our work is a celebration of flavor. Come experience it for yourself!

The Beasts

Count on us for all of your traditional cuts as well as pre-made specialty items such as sausages, pate, dry-aged beef, and charcuterie. We partner with local farms and work with whole animals. We’re committed to staying  curious about food sources and making every meal delicious.

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

Our Ethos

At Beast & Cleaver our focus is on how animals are raised, what they eat, and where they come from. Animals that lead stress-free lives just taste better. That’s why we’ve sourced animals from local farms that are committed to ethical, ecological farming practices. We endeavor to use the whole animal, produce little waste, and respect the lives that sustain us.
