One of the greatest liquor stores in Southern California. Along with all the regulars and a great keg selection, This locations has plenty of Stone, Alesmith, Lost Abbey, Russian River, Hair of the Dog, and a great Belgian selection. Really just about everything you were looking for stored cold.This is also the best location for caviar in Orange County (to accompany your Imperial Stout of course).

There is no better beer store in SoCal. None! This place is huge and has tones of wine and liquor but the beer room - a big walk in filled to the gills is amazing.
If they donít have it, good luck finding it.
Decent pricing, easy parking. A++

This place has everything from great beer to cigars, chocolate, wine, champagne, gifts, glasses, stemware and much more. It is not located in a place that you will not just stumble by. Make sure you have the correct address before you venture-out and find it. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. i have gone to this location for over eight years and they are fantastic to work with.

The first two sentences in the Brew Tour says it all, "Moslems go to Mecca. Beer Geeks go to Hi Time." They have an enormous selection of beer. They have monthly beer tastings. Yes, look at the map on their website, because they are in an out of the way location. The beer staff is knowledgeable. You can mail order beer from them. As noted in the Brew Tour, this is First and Foremost, a Wine store. Even if you aren't into wine, go downstairs and see the wine cellar.

Simply a great liquor store! Hi-Times pretty much has it all. A huge spirits selection, an enormous wine cellar, and a chilled, walk in beer room. If itís available in Southern California, Iíd bet that Hi-Times has it.
Staff is knowledgeable and prices are very reasonable.

What a great selection, best in the area. Itís about 1hr from my house in Carlsbad. A great compliment to Holiday Wine Cellar, it might even be better. All beers are stored in a huge walk-in cooler. Staff is knowledgable: I see some of those guys at the beer events. Extensive selection of whiskeys if your into that. They even ship. The only place I can get Hair of Dog.

The best beer place Iíve found (although I havenít been to far). Great selection of Belgians, Germans and predominantly California micros. Theyíll let you break 6-packs. I drive 110 miles every couple of months for the sole purpose of visiting this place. They do have an online store now but Iíve never used it.
