Attentive staff, great atmosphere, huge selection. The music they were playing was great, and I'd love to come back on a night they have live music.

Pretty great bbq all-around, and you know how hard it is to find good bbq in nyc. Live music makes the place even more fun, while a pool table and friendly staff liven up the front bar. It's a pretty good night, really. Go out for dinner, stay for the band, and after, you can play a few rounds of pool, all while sampling their enormous draft selection.

Holy COW this is the BEST brisket I have had in the city. This is a statement that I do not take lightly. I came here on a Friday night for some live music (great stage and sound system btw) and decided to get some grub while we were there. Little did I know that I was in for the most delicious melt in your mouth brisket ever. They have some great frozen drinks on the ready and a cool bar that is shaped like a U. Definitely going back soon.

I mean, look at that name! And they reside in a warehouse? And they serve a tremendous amount of beers on tap, whiskeys (even frozen whiskey), and barbecue sandwiches? What’s not to love? How far away from everything it is - that’s what. On a somewhat deserted stretch of Myrtle Avenue, this place would be so much better if it had other things in the vicinity. I really wish I lived closer because other than its location, it’s a very low-key place to gather with large groups for good booze and barbecue. The happy hour deal is two for 1 drinks under $7, and the sandwiches (while they all have the same slathering of barbecue sauce no matter what kind of meat…) are a decent size. Beer and whiskey drinkers will love this place: they have obscure, but delicious beers on tap and various kinds of whiskeys to choose from.

I have to say this is one of the better places to get good brisket in NYC. My only issue is that they have a tendency to serve the brisket with too much fat. They should at least trim it a little so it doesn't seem like I am paying for fat. They sauces are delicious and all go well wit the brisket.

Good beer selection, good food, plenty of space, dope staff, non-functional tv in the front bar. Extra star for the lofted pool table.

Unfortunately, I have to compare any barbecue establishment to the gold standard of the area for food, and that is Fette Sau. Keep that in mind for why it got 4 stars and not 5. We came here on a Friday night around 8pm and stayed until after midnight. In comparison to places like Fette Sau, the atmosphere was fantastic. The place had plenty of people but there was still TONS of space and tables open, and the line for food was very minimal all the time. Compare this to Fette Sau which has a 60-120 minute wait basically at all times, and table space is at a premium. Additionally, Beast has a back patio area with tables and a cornhole set, but they don't allow smoking out there and they shut it down when they have live music start playing. The food was pretty solid overall; we tried some sandwiches and a couple of sides. Brisket seemed to be the biggest hit, and the chili and dirty rice were a big winner. The turkey was mediocre, the cornbread was so-so, and the "bourbon bacon" appetizer seemed and tasted like sliced pork tenderloin more than pork belly, and we didn't taste the bourbon at all. Compared to Fette, the food wasn't even close, but on the whole, it was definitely worth getting. As for the drinks, the cocktails and beer were great. They offer all sorts of other drinks like frozen mixed drinks and flights. My favorite cocktail was the White Light/White Heat, which had a sour-sweet taste that was great. This place is a great hangout with live music, drinks, and quality food. You shouldn't come here if you're looking for the best barbecue in the NYC area, but you should if you're looking for a great time. Keep in mind, it's pretty expensive to camp out here for the night, assuming you're big on eating/drinking...
