Rincon Reservation Road Brewery to celebrate 3rd anniversary
In January 2020, the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians, debuted their Rincon Reservation Road Brewery (3R Brewery). Since that time, it has grown exponentially not only expanding off the reservation into Ocean Beach, but they have also won many accolades both locally and nationally n the craft beer community.
This January marks their 3rd anniversary, and they are planning some big things to kick it off. There will be anniversary events and celebrations to follow in 2023 with details on those festivities on site at Valley Center’s brewery and tasting room AND at the OB Tasting room will be unveiled soon.
While details of the celebration are being finalized, the brewery is creating a special Berliner Weisse Anniversary Beer and they want the community involved. 3R Brewery is inviting the San Diego beer-loving community to submit ideas to name the new anniversary beer.
The winner will receive a 3R Brewery gift of swag, a beer tasting for two – and of course bragging rights as the prize for the selected winning name. The submissions can be sent to email@example.com from now– January 6, 2023. The winner will be announced, and prizes awarded January 9. There is no cost to enter the fun naming contest.
