Stopped at the bottle shop part of Dutchs and the attendant was helpful with all the questions I had for him. Honestly after reading the reviews and being refered there I was a bit disappointed. There is a nice selection of bottles to look at on the dock but they don't really have any new bottles sitting out. So if you are looking for something you have to constantly ask if they have it. Id suggest following them on twitter or facebook to know when they get things again. Very helpful on those.

Best beer bar in Cincinnati bar none. Only 8 taps, but they're constantly rotating them and they always have at least a few of the following available: interesting, hard to find/rare, and good locals. Plus they have a bottle selection that numbers in the hundreds (they usually have some nice rare/hard to find bottles available, but you have to ask). The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable. The food is also excellent, and a nice change of pace from standard pub fare. Think gourmet sandwiches and sides made from organic and locally sourced ingredients. The atmosphere is slightly upscale, but relaxed and comfortable, and they have a nice patio with tables (and fire pits in the winter). The bottle shop is also excellent, and as mentioned before, the bottle selection is very large. The bottle shop is a "dock", where you essentially walk up out on the sidewalk and tell them what you want. Being able to walk around an actual shop and browse would be preferable, but it works fine, and you'll never feel rushed. The shop staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Interesting spot.... never been so cold buying brews before.
Mind you it was barely above zero and this is an outdoor bottle shop. Really unique and a place I'd definitely stop by again in warmer weather. The fellow working there was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful.
My only criticism is that the set up is very tight and looking over the beer selection (from the sample empty bottles) is a bit dizzying. But that could also be the rush I was in due to the cold.
Regardless, the help was very keen to ask about styles or brewers and expand on more than what was shown on display.
I'll be back.
