Rincon Reservation Road Brewery opens new tasting room in Ocean Beach
Rincon Reservation Road Brewery – known as 3R Brewery for short – opened the doors to its new tasting room in Ocean Beach on January 16.
The 3R Brewery is owned and operated by the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians, which opened its first location on the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians reservation in Valley Center. The OB location is the first outpost that is not on tribal land.
According to a press release, San Diego’s new tasting room will “pay homage to Native American heritage while rooting itself in the Ocean Beach community.” Design-wise, one of the focal points is a large mural created by Indigenous artist Joseph Hopkins.
3R Brewery offerings include beers like Oasis Blonde Ale, Chief IPA, Rez Dog Hefeweizen and Red Rattler Amber Ale. The tasting room is still awaiting its food service license, but is considering bringing in the talents of Chef Ron Oliver, former head chef of The Marine Room. Oliver’s menu will feature tribal cuisine and incorporate many Native American ingredients.
The new tasting room is located at 4836 Newport Ave in Ocean Beach. Hours of operation are noon to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and noon to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Visit 3Rbrewery.com for more information.
