The Dutch Ale House, the Legendary Saugerties Eatery
Dallas and Ted Gilpin fell in love with Saugerties when they purchased Shale Hill Farm in 2012. After learning that their friends and The Dutch Ale House's previous owners were looking sell, the Gilpin's, partnered with Chef Jonathan Botta, decided to meld their love for Saugerties, history, and food, into the newly renovated restaurant.

The Dutch Sausage plate or the Pastrami Beef Rib. Chef Botta creates and cases his own sausage blend in house. He sources his beef ribs from Smoke House of the Catskills in Saugerties, brining and seasoning them with a pastrami spice blend and smoking the ribs for 5-6 hours in his smoker, which has taken up residence out behind the restaurant.
