Wherever Boost.Asio is useful.

Not very much, although you can use beast::http::serializer and
beast::http::basic_parser using only <boost/asio/buffer.hpp> which is
pretty small, self contained, and knows nothing about sockets.
There is a point of contention here, one reviewer thinks that
buffer.hpp should not be a dependency. However that discussion is
stalled due to non-technical reasons.
Realistically speaking if you are trying to use Beast without Asio
(modulo buffer.hpp as stated above) you aren't going to get very far
