Over the years, Eddy Merckx gained notoriety within the world of cycling as the cannibal, a cyclist who would eat his opponents alive on the climb. This mystique was even further amplified as he began racing for Molteni, a sausage company. Soon, Molteni orange would become an icon of cycling’s rich history and to this day, the Cannibal’s legacy lives on.

This history was without a doubt the inspiration behind Culver City’s the Cannibal Beer and Butcher, which began in New York City. Recently, the Cannibal’s new west side digs had a soft opening where their menu items were open for consumption.

Inside this swanky butcher shop, you’ll find musettes, bidons and other cycling accessories mixed in with craft beer and meat. Check out a few more photos below and if you’re in the ‘hood, roll through once they’re open!

    Go for Dario’s Tartare if/when it’s on the menu. Off the meat eating chain! And their 40 day dry aged porterhouse is def food for a rich celebration, should you feel like indulging. So good!!!
