It's All About the Beer!

Jungle Jim’s International Craft Beer Festival is a weekend dedicated to everything awesome about craft beer: its creation, the breweries, the people behind them, and their fans!

Presented by our award-winning Beer Department, one of the Top 4 Beer Retailers in the country, our International Craft Beer Festival is a celebration of what we already do year round and a way for you to enjoy some of our favorites! When the doors to The Oscar Station open at 7:30 PM, you’ll be swept into an adventure through the world of craft beer! With your 6-ounce tasting glass and your trusty tasting guide in hand, you’ll be welcomed into the festival by 400 beers from over 100 breweries. You’ll get to commune with like-minded beer enthusiasts, sample and sip all night long, and use your tasting guide to take notes on your favorites.

If you get hungry, food trucks will be on-site with plenty of unique bites available for purchase!
