A good spot to stop in Eastgate, much like it’s counterpart in Fairfield, but with a growler station too. Staff are friendly and value is solid. Great grocery selection too (although not as good as the Fairfield JJ’s. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.
Never been here? Prepare for grocery shopping madness, fountains out front all kinds of stuff inside to check out. Literally making shopping adventure. Their beer/wine department is pretty big and they have a bar that fills growlers as well. Found some old beer sitting on the shelf and they didn’t charge me an arm and a leg for it.
Pretty rad grocery store with a super rad beer section. Good taplist (at least for a non-local like myself - I may reevaluate in the future), pouring pints, $0.25 sample tastes, and filling growlers. Wide selection, prices seem decent. Small selection of mix and match singles. Definitely a top-notch grocery store beer stop. Recommended.
Big free dedicated parking. This place is a huge international grocery with all kinds of big sections of products (cheese, cigars, wine, etc, and of course beer). Nobody asked if I needed any help, but this place was really busy on a Saturday afternoon. Prices were pretty good. I picked up several bottles. They have a tap area with pretty good selection, but nothing I was interested in trying. Big selection of bottles: local, Begian, and a few different countries available. You really need quite a bit of time here, especially if you want to check out more than beer. Prices were pretty good. A place to go back to.
Visited this place on a Sunday evening. This is located close to the interstate and within a shopping plaza, so there is plenty of parking available. If you go in the front entrance, you will come across a massive selection of international food. It is quite a walk to get to the beer if you follow the natural progression of the store. My wife and I were wandering around in here (perusing admittedly) for about 45 minutes before we ever came across the beer section. Once we found the beer section, at least I was pretty impressed by it. They had 5 or so very tall shelving units side by side and all filled with various beers. Aside from those, there was a very long aisle equally as tall and also filled with beer. This wall was more for the build your own six packs and the like. there was also some floor space dedicated to cases and some large format bottles. On top of all this, there was a growler station/bar area with some tables set up for sipping. I didn’t spend much time here, but they had a lot of taps that looked interesting. After talking with drsilverworm, he says to park in the back and come in the back door to start closer to the beer section, so take that advice if you go.
I’m always enthralled by grocery stores with good beer selections, so this place was right up my alley. I will be back and not just for beer. We left with several groceries as well. This is a fun place to shop, I just needed more time than what I thought I would.
Man I heard so may great things about this place I was stoked to go there and was way disappointed ! I went In the early evening and stood at the mostly empty tasting bar for almost 10 min Before someone asked if they could help me. A dude that clearly worked there and appeared to be giving direction to other employees (manager ?) Was completely trashed and rolled his eyes when I asked about a specific rare beer.
Was. Not. Impressed.
First time visit to this location 10 days ago. newer store not the easiest place to get to but we worked it out. inside is an international grocery store which is amazing in its own right. finally snaked our way around to the beer section and i was not disappointed. dont know if it is as large as the original store but close and you have selections from about anything you want or need. this location has a beer/wine bar set up in the middle where you can do samples for $.25 cents each or you can purchase a pint for either $3 or $4 depending on what you like. i had a nugget nectar for $4. it seems every friday evening from 5-9pm they have a brewery tap takeover. unfortunately we couldnt stay that long but it was listermans brewery. i believe all the local breweries are represented in the store. this is a great afternoon trip for grocery and drinks.
I’m not really a beer expert ... yet, but I would say Jungle Jims has a very large beer section. Jungle Jims is actually a large international grocery Store and tour attraction. They have several isles of beer selections from around the world. They also have a very large selection of single bottles where you make your own six pack. I am exploring porters at the moment and had no trouble finding six porters that I have never tried before. This place is always crowded, so finding someone to help you is not always easy, and I’m not sure how knowledgeable all the staff are. But it it a fun place to shop and you can find plenty of interesting food items to go along with your beer selections.
Huge place. A large selection of craft beer for the area. Avery diverse selection of food and food stuff. The service is better than the Fairfield location. I find it harder to navigate than Fairfield though.
