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. 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, a 6-pack of Left Hand Sawtooth for $4...

Really cool place. The Eastgate store has a little better selection

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.

This is my home beer store, I live just a couple of miles away. I can't recommend this store enough. The selection is second to none I've seen, I've heard it's one of the biggest selections in Ohio. They get multiple deliveries throughout the week, so the place is usually stocked to the gills with product. I will suggest that you don't visit on peak weekend hours, lots of tourists standing in the beer section making it hard to get around.

Service is... okay. Some of the people there are knowledgable, others are far from it. They all try to be helpful at least. I have also heard that they only hold stuff back for some people making it difficult to get rare items. I would say that's the norm nowadays so take for what it is. Overall I would put this place against any.

I was blown away by this place as a whole, it's massive! Came for the beer only but they have one hell of a food selection as well. Beer section is among the largest I have seen and a nice variety. If it comes to Ohio they will get it. First thing I found was 2 bottles of FFF rye da tiger, which in Columbus was very hard to get ahold of, and 3 bottles of FFF behemoth. With those alone it was worth the trip. Another thing I was supprised by was the nice selection of 1/6 kegs in the walk in cooler. Had a couple alchemy hour that if a had the money to get would snatch in a heart beat. Overall a must stop in Cincinnati and worth the trip out. Looking forward to future visits

I live about 5 minutes from Jungle JIms, so it s just about the only place I go for beer. This place is basically a tourist attraction. Great selection of food, cheese, produce, fresh meats, etc. But the selection of beer is what I go for. The best selection Ive seen in this area. Very quick at getting new lines and new season out, and they generally have decent sales near the season end i.e, Breckenridge Summer $3.99 6/pk, Sierra Nevada Summer $7.99 12/pk just to name a couple. They get a lot of rare beers in so I usually grab them when I see them, usually they are gone the next time Im there. I take any friends and family when they visit, and would recommend this place to any craft beer fan. They also host a Beerfest, in the event center next door, every summer that showcase around 80 brewers.

I've been here a few times, but this was the first time for beer (or being legal to be more specific).

This is a must visit if you're in the greater Cincinnati region. Their beer selection is tremendous, and almost overwhelming. They have all the major US micros and many imports. Great selection of 1/6th kegs available, among them Goose Island Seasonals, all the BMC's, and a Founders or two.

I'm not going to go on about the beer selection, go to the website to get some perspective.

Another great thing about this place is the selection of glassware. Not a ton of options, but a solid 20-30 different glass styles from a fair amount of breweries.

Then of course is the selection of international foods. Every country is represented and there are hundreds of hot sauces, a bakery, and many other great foods. With all of this, it still comes with a small town grocer kind of feel.
