Love this place. It is only about a mile from my house and I find myself up there at least once a week. There are 3 sections to the establishment. the 1st part is the lard where you can get a variety of food as well as a great selection of wine. The second part is the bar its self, with 7 rotating tap and an 8th tap reserved for Oskar Blues Brewery. The bartender told me that they drive to Athens, Ohio, about 2 1/2 hours away to get kegs from Jackie-O's brewery, that proved to me that they truly care about having a variety, but also giving their customers something that they aren't going to find anywhere near by. The third part is the bottle shop. The shop opens up to the sidewalk where you can walk up and choose from hundreds of bottles of beer to take home with you or to take in the bar with you where they will chill it for you. The bar also has a great outdoor patio with fire pits and a bocce ball court. All and all this bar is a great place with great beer and from what I hear great food.

Great bottle shop and bar with a friendly staff and delicious food. Every Thursday is Oskar Blues Hops and Heifers night and you can get a burger and pint of OB for $10. They have a bocce ball court and a really nice patio to perfect for beer sipping on a summer day.

A: nonexistant really--considering you're not really inside of anything. However, the area surrounding this place is nice--lots of stuff to see. When I was at the counter though I felt hurried; it was as if I was expected to buy something immediately or know what I wanted immediately.
Q: Everything looked a little cluttered and disorganized--it was hard to see what they had or didn't have.
S: The attendant made no effort whatsoever to be of any help to me. Every question I asked was answered condescendingly.
S: The selection was standard with some rarities thrown in--nothing stood out as extraordinary.

This place has taken my love of beer to the next level. There are several amazing things this place unique and wonderful.
For starters, they have over 670 bottles! WHOA! When I first moved into the area, I wasn't really sure what to think or try, and this is where Dutch's really goes above and beyond. Instead of waiting on me, they started making suggestions by simply asking me questions, such as "What do you like?" and then they lead me down a path which has completely transformed my pallet for beer tasting.
In doing so, this place has transformed the pallets' of my entire family. I ended up falling in love with IPA's, something that Sierra Nevada Pale Ale had always turned me off.
They have a great bar, that regularly has a different brew on it, and they are all wonderful.
My favorite story about Dutch's happened over the summer, and honestly, it has somewhat created a legend in Cincinnati. I was picking up a bottle before going to a Ray LaMontagne concert. I looked across the street, and I see a familiar face, it turns out it is the newly appointed conductor of the Cincinnati Pops. I yell, "Hey, You are the Pops Guy!" and he says, "That's Me!", well he's known around town as just that, "The Pop's Guy!". His name is John Morris Russell, and since that time we have become friends, and shared a few delicious 3 Floyd's beers there.
I am very proud of this establishment, and regularly boast of it's greatness!

Visited Dutch's on a business trip to Cincinnati. Found it through BA. Pretty cool idea for a bottle shop. They have 2 sides: One a bar/art gallery type. 8 taps with a very good selection. Had 3Floyds Alpha Klaus on tap, 21st Amendment, and several others. The other side is basically an outdoor bottle shop. You stand on the sidewalk and look at this large wall of beer. You can either buy it there to go or have them take it over to the bar for you to drink there.
The employees were very knowledgeable of the beer and were very helpful.
Would definitely visit again.

Ive been to Dutch's a couple times and have had a great experience each time. The bottle shop is a cool little streetside window with an absolutely incredible selection for a bar. All of these bottles are available to go, or to order in the bar. The bar area inside is a little small, but the area outside is large and spacious featuring many tables, fire pits, and a bocce court. The atmosphere outside really is wonderful, and if I lived closer it would be my go to place. They also are great about lists/reserving beers. If you are in the area this is a place definitely worth stopping by.

Let me begin by saying if you want an equal opportunity to get every small release beer without having to make a place your home base, go to Party Source. Dutch's is a neighborhood bar and bottle shop - and the best in the business. And while Gabe did move on to pursue other things, the great staff is still the same. They're great to everyone and take superb care of their regulars. Also, they charged the EXACT same amount for Founders CBS as the brewery did at it's release party, so you can rest assured you're getting good prices. This place is the best spot in town. Don't take my word for it; read everyone else's reviews.

i finally tracked this place down after hearing so many good things about it through word of mouth and seeing some posts of facebook. to be honest i had already purchased all the beer i wanted today until i drove by and realized this was where Dutch's was. naturally i stopped in and spoke when some of the owners and management about beers i couldn't buy in kentucky.
they were knowledgeable, friendly and helped turn me onto some great beer. this is going to be a regular stop for me from now on.

I always stop by this place when I am in town. They have a great selection of MidWest and NorthEast brews. The staff is generally pretty knowledgeable about most things. Sometimes a few seasonals and other limited release beer are hiding out in this well-visited beer destination. The bar always has a nice selection of taps, if you were wanting to stay and drink. You can also buy bottles from the store for bar consumption.
This place is small, but the selection is rich. I would recommend making a stop at Dutch's to any beer lovers visiting Cincy.

Dutch's is a great place to get some hard to find beers. The walk up window is great and the staff always has good suggestions. The communication is great there as well. They respond to email quickly and have a nice comprehensive list of their available beers on their site.
I do not get down there as much as I wish I could but it is one of the first places I call or go to for rare or limited beers.
Unfortunately I have not been there since they remodeled so I hear it is a lot nicer with food now. It is on our short list of places to go to the next time we are in Hyde Park.
