Located not too far from Cincinnati, going to Jungle Jim's is truly an experience. The building really grabs your attention. There is some kind of light-rail contraption outside that is reminiscent of Disney's monorail (just not working). There is a huge parking lot but luckily they have a shuttle (also Disney-esque) for those shoppers too lazy to walk. The Disney comparison continues inside the store, the way it is divided into different "countries", much like Epcot. There are various animatronic animals singing throughout the store much like the It's a Small World ride.

The selection of beer (not to mention wine, cigars, and food) is absolutely mind-boggling. They have a "Wall of Beer" (see pics on the website) with hundreds of different beers from around the country and world. They even have a nice selection of glassware and even some harder to find vintage ales. It is worth the trip!

As for service, don't expect to get much help from the staff, as this is more of a grocery store than a beer store. There is simply so much beer to choose from though, just close your eyes and grab and you are bound to get something worthwhile.

Holy cow! Food paradise! We only spent an hour here and felt like we barely brushed the surface -- cheese, meat, olives, spreads, breads, everything food -- then move on to the beer and wine selection. Very nice!! We will definitely be making a monthly hour-long trek here just for the latter, not to mention the quality foods.

I thought Woodman’s in Kenosha was the biggest grocery store in America. Then I witnessed Jungle Jim’s. More cheese than I have ever seen in my entire life. So much cheese. The beer selection is pretty darn good. Not a super-large selection of imports but pretty much any regional micro that is available in the market is represented here. Prices seemed reasonable. Certainly not much higher than back home in TN. The selection of little kegs is pretty impressive as well. Lots of glassware is for sale at a good price. I don’t know if the beer selection is more impressive than the Party Source just south over the KY border. Jungle Jim’s certainly has more Ohioan beer. My food rating is for the tiny sandwich shop up front at which we ate breakfast. The donuts and the biscuit and gravy are none too tasty.

This Jungle Jim’s is quite incredible place as a supermarket. On beer side it’s very good. Quite a lot single bottles, lots of Ohio beers and also international brews. 16 beers on tap for tasting and growler filling. Found two 6-packs (of singles) of new brews...

Very interesting place to got beer and just about any other smoke, beverage or food you want. Selection is very good of both domestic and non-domestic brews. Very little single bottle selection in domestics. Well worht a visit just for the entertainment value.

Jungle Jim’s is huge- expect to be overwhelmed. A ton of food, and I barely scratched the surface as far as that goes. The beer selection is excellent. It didn’t have a couple things that I heard might be here, but nonetheless I got the regular and BA BORIS the Crusher, Thirsty Dog Imperial Stout, plenty of Southern Tier beers, a few Great Lakes I had to try, and a few other things before I could take no more of my girlfriend’s disapproving looks. Most of the big American microbreweries are represented (tons of Rogue and Stone, decent AleSmith shelf, some Bruery and Hoppin Frog), there are a lot of good international beers, and a decent shelf of sours, lambics, saisons, and the like. There were 4 different Cantillons when I was there, though I passed on them this time around because they would have racked up my bill even more. However, the prices here overall are very fair, either comparable to what you’ll find elsewhere in the region or a little less. A few were more expensive than expected, but I blame Ohio laws for that. Good, helpful staff. Recommended to any beer seeker in the area. Main downside: this place is in a distant suburb of Cincinnati, so it sucks for city dwellers like me and anyone coming from south of the Ohio River.

Place has a very large beer and wine selection. Has some singles but not as many as I had hoped, just one shelf. Many craft brews and imports available. Very interesting store but I can’t say it is better than the party source in the cincy area, or Belmont in the dayton area. Still a great place though

JStax  (356) Devola/Marietta, Ohio | July 6, 2015
Visited this place for one of their beer festivals and perused their beer aisles before joining the festival.They have very tall beer aisles, but they are laid out pretty well. I get the same vibe here as I do at a high end whole foods. They have a lot of international and local, high quality stuff. There is also a bar with what looked like around 20 taps. All taps were craft, and the majority were local beers, which is pretty cool. The beer is located very close to the liquor and cigar section, so a one stop shop if you are in the market for those things as well. All things considered, I would come back here. The only thing is, it isn’t really close to any other beery places, so it would be it’s own trip. I think that’s fine, but I also love fancy grocery stores, which this is.

First off let me say I wish I had a place like this by my house. Awesome supermarket. Massive beer and wine selection. Nice glassware selection. Very solid singles rack. 20 differerent 1/6 barrels in there beer cave.Picked up some Ithica special releases and some items off the singles rack. Place has a little bit of everything. Kinda of a foodies paradise with very reasonable prices unlike a Whole Foods. Not too many places you can get fresh sushi, rare beers, and 4 Tombstone Pizzas for $10.

This place says 1,200 not too sure about that, I would guess more like 800. Still it was a worthwhile trip. Two different places to get singles. The high end foreign beer shelf and the american beer shelf. They have a beer cave which is great for the locals. A few of the bottles had dust. I talked to the kid that was stocking the shelves and he had intermediate knowledge of the beer selection. They didn’t do a real good job of keeping the american singles shelf full. Still a good stop.
