Jungle Jim's is truly Foodie Land - while I'll focus on the beer here the whole store is a huge 2-3 hour experience especially if you're looking for a wide range of international food. Just about any food from any place on the world can be found here - they've even started growing an African part of the store.
So onto the beer - massive selection broken down by country. Lots of single bottles of Belgian, German, English, Scottish, Asian, European, and many other beers. Very good selection of Trappist ales here - all three Rocheforts are here (6, 8, and 10). Large wall of US beers broken down by region (East, West, Central, South) as well as a wall of singles around the corner so you can mix and match your own six pack. Also large pallets of 6 and 12 packs of imports and domestics all over the place. You'll have a hard time NOT filling up your cart to the top.
Do check the dates on the bottles - more than once I've seen something and then noticed the date is several months ago. Sometimes this may be worthwhile if you're planning a cellaring experiment, but other times it has not been as enjoyable.
The place is clean and it's a great grocery store shopping experience. I can't say anything negative about the place beyond the occasional old bottle and when I have asked for help, the people have always been friendly.

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.
