I have gotten to go there twice and have just been blown away by all the beer they have, about 4000 in bottles to choose from. Have a great tasting room with plenty of seating area. I can't say enough good things about it, love it!

I've visited this location many times over the years when my kids were playing sports in Cincinnati. It's a massive supermarket that's laid out in areas by product and requires a map to navigate.

Pro tip: The Ohio "state" store for liquor and beer/wine area are easily accessed from the back of the store by driving around the end of the strip mall and locking for the signs.

I am always floored by how much beer they have and how a lot of it is fresh. Biggest import section I've ever seen. Laid out by country. An entire wall of singles. Shelves are laid out by state of origin. They have high end singles and always have seasonal beers priced to move at the end of the seasons ($5/12 packs etc.) Worth a stop no matter what your into and you can take the family because there's plenty to see in the grocery (an entire deli counter of cheese, because they have 8 or so around the store specializing in something).

I had to pick my jaw off the floor after finding myself walking into a zoo, I mean grocery store. This place is goofy and gigantic, and I'm still not sure if I was just weirdly hungover. Do they really have jungle music playing outside, and a rhino, and a giant spinning bee hive, and bumper car candy shelves, and like a whole ass train coming out of the entrance? Well, the answer is yes. Or is it?

First off, this is a gigantic ass grocery store, and sort of like a mall version of one, with a lot of specifically focused sections not just on food and clothing products, but sections you never thought were necessary (and they probably aren't when really think about it, but hey, it's their investment).

If you don't know where it is, getting to the beer section is actually a bit of an ordeal. Once you get there, it becomes apparent that they really have an impressive, massive, extensive collection of beers that even your secret little in-the-know bottle shop may not be able to obtain. The downside is that the bottles are all stored poorly, especially the IPAs. Also, people that work there are totally over the cheesy concept.

There is a bar in the beer section with, as with the rest of the place, an enormous amount of space between hightops, and a pretty decent tap list and TV screens playing the sports flavor of the day.

Huge grocery store that sells not just craft beer but also cigars, cheeses, wine etc. Huge selection of bottles beer, nothing super rare but very well organized. Also have crowlers and howlers. It's a must stop for anyone in the area.

Jungle Jim's is a foodie's Disney World! The wide variety of hot sauces, cheeses, and European chocolates rivals or perhaps surpasses their beer selection. I have had no problem spending more than I expected both times that I have visited. It is definitely worth the 10 minute drive if you are visiting Cincinnati.

Specifically, Jungle Jim's offers singles for about 300 different US beers and has great international and US selections such as AleSmith, Deschutes, Epic, Jackie O's, Boulevard, etc. One small let down is that singles are only available for certain beers, and it can be hard to get a great collection of local Ohio beers without buying 6 packs. They do have a growler bar as well that only charges 25 cents for each tasting.
