Native American-Owned Rincon Reservation Road Brewery Closing Tasting Room In San Diego's Ocean Beach

May 16, 2023

Southern California's first Native American tribe-owned craft brewery, Rincon Reservation Road Brewery is closing its tasting room in San Diego's Ocean Beach after only a year in business.  
The Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians opened Rincon Reservation Road Brewery (3R Brewery) in late January 2020 in the 5,000 square-foot space adjacent to Harrah's Southern California Resort's casino in Valley Center, CA , replacing former beer concept SR76 Beerworks. Billed as the first certified Native American owned and operated brewery on tribal land in Southern California, the brewery and beer offerings attempt to tell the story of the rich history of the Rincon tribe. In 2021, Rincon Reservation Road Brewery took over the Newport Avenue space that previously housed Belching Beaver Brewery next door to Gianni Buonomo Vintners for the company's first satellite tasting room, which opened in March 2022. 

Rincon Reservation Road Brewery will close its Ocean Beach location after end of service this Sunday, May 21. When one door closes another opens, as 3R Brewery has secured a space in an undisclosed location with a full kitchen to open a new gastropub later this year. 

Rincon Reservation Road Brewery's tasting room is located at 4836 Newport Avenue in San Diego's Ocean Beach. 3R Brewery's original location sits at 777 South Resort Drive in Valley Center, CA. For more information, visit
