I made a quick stop at Jungle Jim's Eastgate after checking out The Party Source on the other side of the Ohio River. This place is truly massive and it's got aisle after aisle of gourmet and not-so-gourmet food.

As far as beer goes, they have hundreds of singles and a nice section of Ohio beer (Mt Carmel, Thirsty Dog, Fat Head's, Brew Kettle, Rockmill). You'll also find the usual names in American craft, including Dogfish, Weyerbacher, Smuttynose, Clown Shoes, Troegs, Victory and Southern Tier. Some Bruery and Revolution as well, and a couple of good Euro brews like De Molen Kopi Loewak.

All in all, there about seven aisles dedicated to beer at this store. Alas, I didn't see any refrigerated beer. I didn't see a beer nerd either.

The growler bar is pretty neat, 12 taps and they give samples. I'm not sure I would come back here but if you happen to live nearby, then it sure is a good option.

Very diverse selection of beers and a pretty knowledgeable staff. They have a tasting bar to offer a variety of samples to prospective buyers. The only local place that carries hard to get imports like Tusker. However, they are restricted from importing any beer, specifically Kenyan and Tanzanian beers like Safari and Kilimanjaro. Not sure if they are reluctant to purchase them or if they actually are unavailable in the United States.

This place has one of the biggest beer selections in Ohio. if it drops in Ohio you can be well assured that JJ's is going to get it and most of the time get plenty of it. the only downside is that have grocery store like customer service. Most of the beer employees have no idea what any regular beer geek is talking about. the best they can do is say," if we got it, its out here".

Reasonable prices - but the best deals are the closeouts and clearance skids of great beers, wines and spirits. Typical craft beer savings 16.99 12 pack - 7.99. The rest of the store is a foodies oasis. Two awesome locations. One of a kind experience. Check out their website for special events. If you haven't been - you gotta go.

Excellent store with a truly unique atmosphere. Very friendly, helpful staff. The selection is outstanding and constantly changing/expanding. Good deals on glassware too.

Three huge gripes:
1. They do not store hoppy beers at cold temperatures. They are (carelessly) left on the shelves.

2. This place is AWFUL when it comes to letting old beers sit on the shelves. DO NOT take a chance on buying a hoppy beer from them unless it has a bottled-on date. It is not uncommon to find 3-month-old IPAs polluting their selections. For such an otherwise stellar retailer, I think this is shameful.

3. They never seem to have their act together when it comes to handling limited releases. Come on, people. You have to keep in touch with the beer scene so that when a beer like KBS or Fat Head's Hop Juju shows up, you have a plan for fair sales. Decide on a policy, explain it to customers who call, and adhere to it.
