Outside Lands: Food and Drink

The San Francisco food scene is serious business and Outside Lands is no exception. Looking for proof? If you go under the “Lineup” tab on the festival’s website you’ll find not only artists, but a list of food and drink vendors. Upwards of 80 of them to be precise, selling everything from gourmet funnel cakes to ramen burgers. Needless to say, the amount of options can be crippling. Several familiar businesses with Marin brick and mortar’s will be making an appearance (Belcampo Meat Co., El Huarache Loco, Three Twins Ice Cream, Iron Springs Pub and Brewery, Headlands Brewing) but with so many celebrated purveyors in one location, this is a wonderful opportunity to expand your gastronomic horizons. To help you dip your toe into all that’s available, we’re highlighting our five food newcomers that will hopefully satisfy your needs. We’re also shining a light on a handful of beer mongers. Are you fond of any of them, too? Let us know!
