I've hit this place up a couple times when I am visiting friends in family in my old hometown. What brought me back this time was the wife wanting to hit the Ikea store and I wanted to grab a sixer of SN Anniversary Ale.

Last time I was there I was in search of Founders KBS which they only sold in singles, same applied to the SN Anniversary Ale; bummer but at least I nabbed three bottles. Like any place that sells singles, they are always a tad pricey.

I have never dealt much with their employees except to check out, the selection is pretty solid when it comes to American craft beer (though it's not much different then the stuff I can grab in Columbus), the import selection is pretty big, and overall the value is about average.

Not a bad place... (760 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)
