Swine City’s Anniversary And Bottle Release

Butler County and more specifically Fairfield had been desperate for something to call their own for a long time (when it comes to the brewery world). We’re a part of town packed with craft beer fans (have you seen how crowded a Jungle Jim’s pint night can get?), yet for a while, we had to […]

Jungle Jim’s Is Preparing For 2019 Barrel Aged Beer Bash

This event gets better and better each year, and bigger and bigger with each passing year as well.  It’s quickly become one of the largest celebrations of barrel aged beer that you’ll find across the country with more than 100 barrel aged beers from all over the world being poured.  The Barrel Aged Beer Bash […]

Jungle Jim’s 2018 Barrel Aged Beer Bash

I don’t go to every beer festival that is held in Cincinnati.  Time is a precious commodity and it seems like not all of them are worth me setting aside a whole evening to attend, by a far margin.  However, there are a few that I try as hard as I can to never miss […]

Swine City Announces An Opening Date

If you’ve been following this Fairfield brewery for the seemingly very long time that they’ve been planning, then this is going to be really exciting news for you.  If you have no idea who I’m talking about when I mention Swine City, then it should still be pretty good news… we’ve got a new brewery […]

The 2017 Jungle Jim’s Beerfest Quickly Approaches!

I get asked a lot about my favorite brewery, or my favorite beer in this city – and my answer is always as vague and indecisive as possible.  It’s too hard to choose favorites in a city that is so diverse, full of beers that are so delicious, especially when it comes to something that […]

Vol 02 – Episode 39 – Live at the Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged Beer Bash

Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield Ohio knows how to do a lot of things very well.  One of those things is beer festivals.  For this episode we set up a table right in the heart of their big Barrel Aged Beer Bash to talk all things barrel aged beer (and maybe drink a few of them […]

Jungle Jim’s 2017 Barrel Aged Beer Bash

This event started small.  I mean… how many people were going to show up for a tasting of a bunch of barrel aged beers?  But Jungle Jim’s was on to something back in 2014.  The event that was christened the Barrel Aged Beer Bash grew, and kept growing.  It’s funny… all of the reasons that […]

The Great Miami Hop Project: Episode 1

Rivertown ended their year with quite the ruckus here in Cincinnati.  When they announced that they’d be building a production/brewpub facility up in Monroe to the tune of a big 32,000 square foot building with a 50bbl brewhouse pushing beer out to 40 taps, it was a welcome surprise to many of their fans here in […]

Event of the Week – Jungle Jim’s International Beer Fest

There are more and more beer festivals around Cincinnati as each year goes by, and there isn’t any reason to think that’s a bad thing.  In my mind though, there is still one beer fest that sits above the rest, it’s one of the longest running, and best run festivals here in the city and […]

Rhinegeist Pint Night at the Jungle! 07/11/14

Another week…another pint night!  This week Jungle Jims will be featuring beers from Rhinegeist, $3… keep your glass.  Fresh Servati’s pretzels.  By now, you should know the drill.  Keep your eye on twitter and facebook for updates on which beers they will be featuring!

Jungle Jim’s

How can you start talking about Jungle Jim’s as a beer store without first explaining the store to anyone who hasn’t been there? It’s not really a beer store, it’s not even really a grocery store. It’s a food theme park, or a culinary dreamland. They have foods here that you didn’t even know existed. Make […]

Friday Night Pint Night @ Jungle Jim’s

My favorite grocery store is home to my favorite bar, which hosts my favorite weekly beer event on Friday nights.  Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield is host to a weekly pint night that becomes the go to place for me after work on Fridays.  Their beer tasting bar has 16 taps, and on Fridays […]
