Hi-Time is one of the quintessential beer destinations in Southern California. The selection is great and they always seem to get stuff in before anyone else. Almost everything is kept within a walk-in fridge. They have a staggering selection of Belgians that's unsurpassed by any bottle shop I've visited. The staff is generally very friendly and knowledgeable about their inventory. Plus, they've been getting a fairly large quantity of the special releases in lately. I recently picked up a few bottles of Old Rasputin XII, of which they had over five cases. They also had plenty of Angel's Share, Cuvee de Tomme, as well as lots of fresh Sculpin. Overall, Hi-Time is well worth my drive.

Great place that I would highly recommend to anyone in the surrounding area - very accessible from the 55 fwy.
Service was good, but not overly pushy/hovering. They have a great selection of glassware.
Most importantly, the beer! Big wall of coolers and a crazily-stocked walk-in that is loaded with domestic and imports. Also, being able to break into 4s or 6ers to purchase a single is a fun twist and lets you try new stuff that would only be offered in 6 packs elsewhere.
Great store...I'll be back!
