One of Cincinnatiís premier craft beer stores/bars. One of the few places in Cincinnati one can always find real ale. Peanut, the beer manager, has one of the better palates in the city and this is reflected in the beer selection.

Located in an adorable college neighborhood. Easy to find. Food was awesome. Beer selection unexpected in the small location. Very nice. Must try the beer cheese dip! Service was good but VERY slow...And not slow because they were busy. Just very laid back service. I had the seared tuna sand. It was great! Would definitely visit again.

Very cool location that is a wine store upfront with a deli in the back and side of the wine shop. The beer to a novice would seem like an afterthought but it is anything but. If itís volume you are looking for this is not the store for you. But for quality this store is excellent. I am an out of town rater but the prices seem to be on par with other stores I have visited in the area and in Ohio. Worth checking out.

This is an interesting little place. 1/3 liquor store, 1/3 deli, 1/3 bar. Only 4 or 5 people sitting at the bar at 4:30 on Thursday. Looks like they had a cask and had Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot on tap from the quick glance I took at the taps. Nice little bottle selection. Biggest Alesmith selection I have seen in Ohio so far. Nice little neighborhood place.

I drove down here from Dayton (50 minute drive) on the recommendation from a friend and immediately have been back down on 2 other occasions. They have everything I look for in a beer establishment. They have approximately 12 or so taps, including a cask-conditioned ale, and every one seems to be something unique and exceptional. The frustrating part of this place is trying to decide what beer you arenít going to be able to have that day. The food selection was so impressive I turned what was going to be a quick lunch into a 3 course beer and food pairing event. The food quality was every bit as good as it sounded on the menu (if not better). As an added bonus, they have a great bottled beer selection for take out. I also should add the wine selection was every bit as impressive as the beer selection. Definitely will be on my list of places to stop every time Iím in the Cincinnati area.

THE destination in Cincinnati for great brews, delicious food, and knowledgeable staff of all things beer. The selection is not as voluminous as other locales in Cincinnati, but there is great depth in whatís available and the staff is very willing and able in assisting with their selections, Definitely a stop worth making if youíre in the locale/

A must-visit for any beer fans visiting Cincinnati, Dilly Deli features a deli counter, restaurant, and wine and bottle shop. Food is pretty good. Solid selection in a small space for the bottle shop- more space is devoted to the wine cave- but honestly the selection has deteriorated since Iíve been in here last. Most of the labels I like to buy in Ohio were represented, but the stock looked low and picked over and lots of the bottles were dusty. The tap list also seems to be less exciting than it used to be. Still a lot of good stuff but Iím wondering if itís just gone downhill overall.

Went here for lunch on a visit to Cincinnati. Had a lot of southern tier and jolly pumpkin beers, among other stuff, in bottles. The food was decent but not great. Decent draft list. they just ran out of stone RIS and switched over to new holland night tripper. They also had some mount carmel beers and other stuff that iím forgetting at the moment. I should have thought three times about ordering a bbq type dish from a place like this. probably isnít there specialty. but i enjoyed my time here nonetheless.

Dilly Deli is one of the best destinations for Cincinnatiís serious beer drinkers. Located in the historic town of Mariemont, east of Cincinnati, this is not just a beer store, itís also good restaurant. Their 13 taps rotate regularly, showcasing some of the best Belgians and American craft beers available. During my first visit I ordered a TrŲegs HopBack and Bellís Porter (cask!), while my wife enjoyed a Tripel Karmeliet. During another visit I had a Southern Tier Jah-va on tap (outstanding). A nice selection of appetizers and entrees are available, including their delicious gourmet beer cheese. As if that werenít enough, journey to the back where there is a respectable selection of foreign and domestic beers for sale. Macros are virtually nowhere to be found. Thereís also live music on the weekends. Prices can run a tad high and the service is a bit slow at times. Nevertheless, the Dilly is highly recommended for Cincinnatiís beer lovers.

(Visited 02/2008): Dilly Deli is located in Mariemont, which is a suburb of Cincinnati. It is a quaint town with street and small parking lots sprinkled around. The Deli is tucked away and is difficult to spot from the road.
The interior is cramped but not necessarily in a bad way. After entering the deli is on the right, followed by a small aisle of grocery-type items. To the left of that is restaurant seating. After that you hit the bar area, with a small wine alcove to the left of it. In the rear of the store is the bottled beer for sale. The majority is on shelves, with a couple coolers.
The beer selection is limited due to space but well thought-out. The bar has draughts from Mt. Carmel, Barrel House, Bellís (cask Expedition!), Chimay, and GLBC to name a few. The bottles are from craft brewers in the USA (Rogue, Stone, DFH, Stone, etc) and all over the world. Belgium, France, Germany, Japan and others are represented.
Service here is very good. The bartenders who served us (food and drinks, as we did not want to wait 45 min for a table) were very attentive and knew the beer. I think one of the bartenders was an owner the Saturday evening we visited.
Dilly Deliís food is really good. My pulled pork sandwich had some of the best BBQ sauce I have ever had. One of my friends complained about his burger being overdone but he is a wuss (and got the burger free anyway) so I am not applying to my score.
Overall I have not had a better beer day in quite some time between visiting Party Source and Dilly Deli within a couple hours. This is another must-visit spot in the Cincy area.
