Although this is a beer store and bar, I am reviewing the bar area only. The beer store selection looks great, but I didn't purchase anything.
Small bar area with eight seats at the bar and a small bench. There are three additional small round tops in front of the large window overlooking Erie Avenue. There is large patio in the back, but it was 'inside' weather during my visit. Got here at 5:15pm on a Wednesday and it was empty, but by 6:15pm all bar seats were filled.
Quality of drafts is excellent. Eight selections; Mojo Risin nitro, GD Hercules, Bell's Third Coast, Stone Smoked Porter, Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza, 21st Amend Monks Blood, Avery Joe's Pilsner, Left Hand Jr. Black Belt. And you can purchase and open any of the bottles from the attached store. They have a 'featured selection' list of bottles/cans for the bar, but you can get anything from the attached shop.
Service was attentive and friendly. The bar keep was knowledgable enough about the current and future offerings.
Selection gets dinged since there were only eight taps, but quality makes up for it.
They do offer a cheese plate, spinach artichoke dip, and bacon wrapped dates, but I didn't partake. Hyde Park Pizza is steps away and permitted inside Dutch's.
Overall, a solid laid back spot in Hyde Park. I felt like this place would be accessible to any patron with a nose for quality.

I must have driven by this place on Erie a dozen times and I have never noticed it before! I was driving around with newtonty today at lunch and just about locked up the brakes when I saw 100+ bottles of fine beers on ledges in the open air! I immediately pulled over and checked the place out. How unique, Jay (The owner) sells beer out in the open air, Key West-stlye in the Natti, can't beat it!
Jay was very friendly and knowledgeable. He had all kinds of empty beers on the shelves, including a great selection of Bells, Stone, DFH and MANY imports, including Belgians... When he's out of stock of a certain beer, he simply turns the empty bottle around on the shelf! He has a GREAT selection of quality beers all crammed on display!
Take a minute out of your busy day like I did and check this place out - you'll be glad you did...

This was a destination stop for me on a trip around Cincinnati yesterday. I had heard about Dutch's and was on a search for Cantillon (which they were out of) but found a few other beers I'd been anxious to try. It is a walkup stand, kind of like a concession stand at a baseball game, but stocked with some harder to find beers. I ended up getting a Marron Acidifie, Weyerbacher Riserva, Ithaca Ten, and Ithaca Old Habit. They had at least 250 different beers to offer. They had empty bottles of each on shelves in front of the stand so you can pick them up, check labels, and check pricing. The guy at the window was helpful and answered all of our questions. The whole premise behind the store is such a good one, and very interesting. I thought it was awesome, so did my friends. I'd highly recommend this store. Don't blink or you might miss it.

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.

Just moved to the area recently and I was happy to see such a quality beer dock within walking distance. Jay really knows his beers as do all his fellow workers.
The selection is great with newer beers on the table up front and more information is written on the blackboard. All the beers seem to be available cold and you can mix and match six packs which is always good when one is feeling indecisive.
There is always something new and Jay seems to know what is happening around Cincinnati if beer is involved. Really a unique set-up and it's a great place to find new beers. Cheers!

I absolutely love this place! Mix and match 6 packs, and they have an excellent selection to build your ideal pack!
I would recommend this place to beginners and the most experienced micro-brewery enthusiasts!!!
I started out just picked styles and micro-breweries that I had heard of and moved on to new styles and new micro's that I hadn't ever heard of. The people working there are exceptionally helpful and uber-knowledgeable!
Check it out when your in the Hyde Park neighborhood, and just park right in front for 10 minutes while you pick your pack!

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.

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.

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.

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.
