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".
