Jungle Jim's is a place that needs to be experienced. They are the super ultra megamart that we all wish we had in out back yard. Its a staple of the Cincinnati beer scene. The beer selection is second to none in the city, top 4 in the area. Many Ohio breweries are represented here, including Hoppin Frog, Buckeye, Brek Kettle and Rivertown. Due to Ohio's 12% abv cap, you won't see huge, high gravity beers here, but the selection is amazing.

Also worth checking out here is the liquor store, and walk in humidor. There's an amazing wine selection, glassware and homebrew shop as well. In this part of the buidling, there's a Starbucks and sub shop as well as the famous Jungle Jim's Deli and Cheese Shoppe.

A must see for anybody travelling in the area. (758 characters)

I was in Cincinnati celebrating my birthday for the weekend. This was one of the places on my list to visit because I have never been here. I was blown away with their selection. I was also pleasantly surprised that they have about 8 beers on tap for you to try. The store also has a huge selection of food, wine, cheese, cigars, hot sauces, etc. I could spend hours in here checking everything out. I wish it wasn't 3 hours away from where I live. I love shopping while drinking a nice craft beer! I ended up leaving with 4 sampler cases from the local Cincinnati breweries. I can't wait to go back again. (615 characters)

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. (1,442 characters)

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! (433 characters)

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. (331 characters)
