Everytime I go to SoCal, if I’m 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 it’s a must stop.

Visited Monday, 6/27/2016. Tough to find (even with GPS) but worth the effort. Service was okay, but it was the beer selection that made this place exceptional. Came away with several bottles, international and domestic (and a couple of new country ticks).

Fantastic place. Lots of hard to find booze, rare wines and an excellent beer selection all in a huge cooler. Everything from singles to 6-packs, domestic and foreign. Prices a bit on the high side, but absolutely a stop worth if you’re in the area. I happened to walk in to their monthly beer tasting today with 10 local beers being poured accompanied with cheeses and salamis. Great place!

Quite an epic selection of booze. A ridiculous liquor selection, and a very good wine selection. Beers were almost all kept in a cooler, with a large amount of uncommon to see beers (nothing super rare, but a lot of new ticks even for a local). Employees were knowledgeable, but vocally arrogant and dismissive. Prices were fair for wine and beer, but a bit high for some/most of the liquor.

I seem to find my way to this store every time I’m in SoCal. Good location (even though its a bit hard to find) with ample parking. The beer section is sequestered off to the side of the store and almost seems separate, but I give them high marks for their giant walk in cooler where most if not all of their beer is kept in good condition. I always find some interesting beers here that I can’t get in NorCal. They had a pretty good selection of imported craft as well. The employee there seemed to know about most of the recent releases and what was coming soon. A good place to visit when down in this direction.

Great Selection of Import & Craft US beer. Really well laid ouit store (easy to navigate). Good prices and was able to buy some really good beer goblets that I brought home with me. Some real gems in the beer cooler; I will be back!

This place was unbelievable. All the beer is in a walk in cooler, lots of singles and local stuff like Russian River, Alesmith, Lost Abbey, etc. If you are in OC, you need to stop here.

Big beer, wine, spirits, tobacco and gourmet food place tucked away behind a big strip mall. The place is really nice but the beer area is tucked away in a more unfinished area which is still nice and organized. Service was great, someone asked if we needed any help and made some nice suggestions. Selection was really good, lots of California micros, US micros and imports. Value was great on most things while some bottles seemed a tad bit high. Overall a great bottle shop, definitely stop by if you’re in the area and see that they have.

Semi residential location with big walk in cooler, all the standards plus a few not seen everywhere else, good store if you are in the area, wish they still shipped here

My go to beer store during a recent work trip to the OC. They have a walk in fridge with brews sorted by country. I found so many gems that I had been looking for. Bought some glasses as well - their collection is stellar. Service is hit or miss - a few people have been incredibly friendly and helpful while some others have been a bit stand offish. This place rules and I could see myself being a regular if I lived here.

Visited here on my way back from Hollywood. Its kind of tricky to find. Very nice walk in beer cooler with many gems that you don’t normally see in Socal stores. Prices were quite reasonable, I picked up a couple of Odonata Saisons for $5 each. I did not require any assistance but I feel that I had I needed any help would have been available.
