The Beat officially began in January 2015 as a small cold-pressed juice & tea shop by Tobyn Britt, the son of Cathy Britt, the owner of Dancing Colours gift store. In May of that same year, Tobyn had a very unsuspecting life change, he married a vegetarian chef from Telluride after only knowing her for 12 days! They joined forces to expand The Beat's offering to include vegetarian lunch fare and a fabulous cocktail selection in the summer season. The response thus far has been wonderful and The Beat is busier than they ever imagined! A new kitchen with more amenities is in the works and will be finished Summer 2018. Look out for large grain based bowls, vegetable centered entrées, biodynamic wines and large array of Colorado beers.

Frequently Asked Questions (and ones no one knew to ask...)

IS THE BEAT ORGANIC?
-The Beat currently uses around 80-85% organic ingredients. We are not 100% organic not only for economic reasons but also many of our farmers/suppliers are not certified organic but choose to use organic or "moreganic" practices.

WHERE IS THE BEAT?
It is located at 968 Main St in Carbondale, CO. It is located in the same building as the Dancing Colours gift shop.

WHEN WILL THE BEAT RE-OPEN?

We are aiming for June 2018, at first we will open for our usual lunchtime hours and eventually add evenings to our repertoire.
