Rincon Reservation Road Story 

Established in 2019, Rincon Reservation Road Brewery is SoCal’s first (and only!) tribally-owned and operated brewery, located on the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians Reservation. Known as the original Californians, the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians have prevailed for over 14,000 years. In times past, our ancestors traveled along a trail of the San Luis Rey River, which ran from its headwaters in the Warner Hot Springs area of Palomar Mountain, to its mouth at modern-day Oceanside.

The Luiseño people used this trail to travel across mountains to hunt for animals and gather acorns with which they made we wish, a traditional staple of their diet. Venturing to the coast they would fish among the rocks on the shore. Along the way on the trail there were tribal villages at Rincon and Pauma, where they would often stop to visit with friends and relatives

Today that indigenous trail we call Rincon Reservation Road is a historical expedition that runs through several modern-day Indian reservations including Rincon, Pechanga, Soboba, Pala, Pauma, and La Jolla. As it did in the olden times, Rincon Reservation Road still connects our people.  Our goal is to educate and pay tribute to our heritage while making quality craft beer from sustainable ingredients inspired by our culture. Several of our beers are gluten-reduced, too. We invite you to raise a glass and join us on this journey. Call us 3R Brewery, Reservation Road, anything, just give us a call and come taste the flavors of our land!
