I've never really thought about supermarkets as an attraction, but this place is definitely tour-worthy. Jungle Jim's is an attraction unto itself, and has a great selection of beer, much as it has a great selection of pretty much everything it sells - olives, cheese, hot sauce, honey, - really everything! I've derided both beer pricing and selection in Ohio since I moved to here from Wisconsin a few months ago, but Jungle Jim's is a definite exception...it is by far the best beer selection I've seen in OH, and while I feel I've been victimized by Ohio's minimum-markup laws, I feel like the prices here weren't bad.

They have mixed-sixes, although the pricing and selection on the mixed-sixes weren't great. But the bomber and six-pack selection were great, and while the place isn't cheap, it is not as bad as other beer stores I frequent in OH.

I didn't speak to anyone here; no idea what service is like here, but it's a grocery store - other than getting help finding the hoisin sauce and the Boboli, do you expect from a grocery store?

Not only are the Jungle Jim's locations both some seriously impressive grocery stores wherein one can reasonably expect to find anything edible (ostrich? boar bacon? rancid emu eggs? It's there!), but the craft beer section is nothing to sneeze at. Multiple taps for tastings and growler fills, in addition to aisles for country / region, all reasonably well-stocked with tons of breweries' offerings. That includes AleSmith, The Bruery, and tons of others. If you want to see a partial list of what they carry, just look at the "Brands" and "Beers We Sell" sections of the websites for Premium Beverage Supply and Heidelberg Distributing. JJ's orders every single beer each of those distributors carries, plus more.

The imports section is absurd for German and Belgian beers, in a good way. If Paulaner, Ayinger, St. Bernardus, or Weihenstephaner brew it, it's in a bottle there somewhere.

To top it all off, there will occasionally be ludicrous sale prices on packs of beer at the Fairfield location. I've gotten a 12-pack of GLBC Edmund Fitzgerald for $8, and a 6-pack of Left Hand Sawtooth for $4.

The downsides are that the staff aren't generally all that knowledgeable - there are some beer geeks, but mostly grocery store employees who just happen to work in the beer section. Advice is not their forte. They also tend to keep a lot of their inventory on non-refrigerated shelves under fluorescent lights, so check dates on bottles.

Went to Jungle Jim''s yesterday. I was a little disappointed with the amount of options. I guess I was expecting more. Where I wasn't disappointed at all, was the different selections I can't get In Indianapolis. I ended up getting quite a bit. I actually even found Elderberry wine which I had been looking for. It was a two-hour trip from Indy, but worth it if your looking for some exotic foods and a different selection of beers!

I grew up around this area and still have a lot of family in the area. Every time I come back(1-3 times a yr) stopping at Jungle Jim's is a must. You never know what gems you will find on the shelves. I was there in Sept of this yr and found a few BBQ sitting on the shelves. Highly recommend any craft brew lover to swing by here.

Walking into the beer aisle I realized " your not in Kentucky anymore." Huge selection of quality brews and much are unavailable to me in KY. The Bruery, Alesmith, Ballast Point, Great Divide, Victory and so much more were waiting and to top it off I found several that were available but apparently in short supply. There's about ten taps with several great offerings that you can try while you peruse the best selection I've seen. The staff were friendly but not beer geeks, but who cares when your staring at so much.

Between the cigar selection in their walk in humidor and the beer selection available, I thought I landed in my own personal heaven on earth. Jungle Jim's is an adult theme park for foodies, beergeeks, winos, and cigar snobs alike. Massive Ohio brewed selection, tasting area offered beers I had never had, or heard of. Cigars were stellar quality is top notch, and I'm glad I made it to this store, I have to go back but if I never make it there's at least one thing off of my bucket list. I didn't meet many employees well versed on beer, but I was so impressed and jealous at the same time that this isn't located in my neighborhood. Awesome place for cigar, wine, and beer tastings there's nothing like this store not a cookie cutter chain, one of kind built piece by piece as eclectic as any world market could ever claim to be. This place has to be in the Guinness book of world records for originality or something.
