Beltrami gets a new bar: Beast BBQ

A new bar has opened its doors in the neighborhood. Called Beast BBQ, the new addition is located at 825 E. Hennepin Ave. in Beltrami.

The bar serves up a full menu of barbecue options. Smoked meats include chopped pork butt, pork ribs, beef tips and whitefish. Take a peek at the 2 Meat Platter, complete with two choices of meat and two sides for you and your date, or grab a Smoked Beast Sammie, a sandwich that includes horseradish cream and pickled jalapeños. (Check out the full menu here.)

With a three-star rating out of eight reviews on Yelp so far, the new arrival has gotten a mixed response.

Aaron S., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Feb. 1, wrote, "Really enjoyed my platter with chopped pork and jojo potatoes. The potatoes had a super gnarly, awesome rub on them and were cut like chips, but still soft like a fry."

Yelper Kelly T. added, “Love this place! Way better than the bar that used to occupy this space. The barbecue seems phenomenal and the owner is very nice. All around a great experience!"

Beast BBQ is open from 11 a.m.–2 a.m. daily.
