This place is the shit. All their beer is in walk in cooler. Singles available. Tons of local brews including tons of Alesmith, Russian River, Lost Abbey, and Alpine. Had Deliverance for $16 which was $8 cheaper then Hollingshead. Another must stop in the OC.

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++

Great beer store right near NewPort Beach Brewing. Nice selection of California locals along with monsters like Abyss. Was told they ship also. A must stop if in the area.

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).

Everytime I go to SoCal, if Iím in the area I stop by Hi-Times. The wife loves their tequila and I could spend an hour perusing thru the walk-in cooler looking (and freezing) thru everything they have. A really nice selection, prices are pretty decent and they allow you to break up a sixer (for a price). If you are near Huntington Beach, or anywhere else in Orange County itís a must stop.

Two things. This is an alcohol emporium. Most of the beer is kept cold, which is great. I think everybody has covered the details here. I like that beers rotate and move. Freshness is a nice aspect of the beers offered here, in my book. Prices are fair, selection is broad. Organization could be a little better. Ask if they have anything on the shelves that isnít out and theyíll go in the other cooler and show you treats like Consecration.
