(Visited 02/2015 during Cincinnati Beer Week): Dutch’s is located on Erie Ave in East Hyde Park. Street parking is available in front of the building.
There is an outside walk-up carryout bottle shop to the right of the entrance, which is pretty cool. Inside opens to a bar that features a couple standing tables along the windows and a bar that runs nearly the length of the room. Maroon walls with nice lights, and a board at the end of the bar that lists what beers are on tap.
The beer selection consists of 8 draught beers. On my visit there were some specific to CBW like Cincy 3-Way Porter and other breweries like West Sixth and Mt Carmel. The bottled selection is pretty robust and numbers in the 100s.
Service on an early Saturday afternoon during a snowstorm was pretty good. The bartender was attentive and friendly.
I did not have any food on this visit.
Overall I liked this spot, it would be nice to come back during nicer weather and when I wasn’t on a timetable.

This is the oddest beer store I have ever seen. To purchase beer to go I had to approach a large open window storefront on the sidewalk like a vendor’s stand. Here was hundreds of empty bottles in sight representing their selection. The salesman was very knowledgeable and helpful. All beer is stored in a walk-in cooler which is retrieved upon ordering. The selection is staggering with dozens of beers I wanted. Adjacent to this shop is the bar with 6 quality taps and the huge bottle selection. It’s quite small and intimate. Growlers are available on this side. Fantastic selection, outstanding service, and a pleasantly odd concept.

Great place. Like a lemonade stand for big boys. Incredibly helpful and knowledgeable staff (DrSilverworm). Maybe I’ll visit Ohio again...

Update 12/09/10: Have added a wine and beer bar next to package store. Rotating taps and bottles which can be purchased at package store and opened and drank for a small corking fee. Freindly staff with growing knowledge. Nice upgraded location for Cincinnati.
On street in Hyde Park with parking in front and across the street. Walk up outdoor store front with single bottle beer selection on shelf rows to show what they have in cooler in the back. Service was good and good knowledge from owner of beer selection. Very good selection of brews. I was on my motorcycle and could not take any brews home. I will come back. Well worth a visit.

Interesting set up, but not a fan of it. Empty bottles line the sidewalk, they either filled with rocks or faded by the sun, ugly. A decent selection of stuff, I was shocked to see Tallgrass tallboys and Rockmill bombers. Service was good, the guy knew his stuff but he was a bit overly nice.

Dutch’s is located on Erie in the busy Hyde Park Neighborhood of Cincinnati. There is a deli (Larder) with wine for sale, a patio, a bar, and a bottle stand. There are 8 taps with maybe the most interesting selections in town at any given time. There isn’t a whole lot of room in the bar area, so it gets pretty packed on a weekend night. The bottle window displays empties of almost everything available, which is back in the cooler. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. This place is awesome. Maybe my favorite all-around stop in Cincinnati. And it keeps getting better.

Small, odd, classy, bocce. That about sums this place up. The bar/restaurant has a nice long bar and some communal seating. Upscale decor that gives the place a quiet cool feel. Outdoor space has a few tables, a firepit for the evenings and cool afternoons, and a bocce ball court- which is always nice. Eight taps but they were all high quality so the limited taps isn’t that big of a deal. Large bottle selection/shop that opens to the street in what has to be the oddest bottle shop setup I’ve ever seen. Very neat, though. A few ciders on the menu, too, which was nice. Good selection of wine for the non-beer drinkers. Would frequent the place if I lived nearby.

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. The staff and management are fantastic. 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.

On the advice of b3shine I stopped by here for a sour tasting a few years ago. Ever since then it has been a go to destination if I have the time. Between the selection at the outdoor dock, the tap list, and the bottle selection at the bar it merits consideration near the top of the list for Cincinnati. If you don’t want to go across the river to Party Source then you should definitely hit up Dutch’s. Even if you do trek across the river there are several breweries not available on the Kentucky side.
As an added bonus you can get some great food. I have yet to eat here personally but the options behind the deli look mouthwatering. If you can time it to arrive at an offpeak hour then parking should not be an issue either with plenty of spots along a side street.

Parking was a little challenging. Looks like a hotdog strand, but who cares. Empty bottles on display, so you know what they have in the back. All of the beer seems to be refrigerated. I talked to one of the owners and a girl that was working there and both were very nice. Brought a list and they had several bottles, plus they suggested some beers I was additional interested in. Had some Fantome I have been looking for. Selection was a little limited, but quality brews. Service was good and so were prices. I will be back when in the area.
