A Taste of the Bay Area 2019

80 Bay Area Restaurants

A Taste of the Bay Area stays true to its mission in showcasing the region's rising stars, diversity of eats and growing trends. Culinary aficionado Tanya Kollar, who has diligently worked behind the scenes at Outside Lands since 2010, has curated the 80-part lineup. Some of the Bay Area's most interesting pop-up restaurants join the festival this year. There is Pinoy Heritage, Francis Ang's fantastic Filipino venture, Oakland's wildly popular Chef Smelly's Creole and Soul Food, and Cannaisseur, known for creating exquisite cannabis-infused dining experiences. With Henry's + KronnerBurger, Oakland's much beloved chef Chris Kronner revives his KronnerBurger, "the burger to believe in," for Outside Lands. Also rolling in from the East Bay isXolo with its creative Mexican eats, including Impossible Burritos.

The Marina's Causwells joins the party with its famous smash-style Americana Burgers while Rooh will throw down inventive Indian fare with dishes likeChicken Koliwada, and Noosh will serve Eastern Mediterranean-inspired bites like Aleppo Chicken Pita Sandwiches. Festival-goers can further cross borders as they traverse the fields for menu items like Sisig Fried Rice, Sweet Corn Arepas, Chicken Katsu Sandos, Xi'an Dumplings and Ethnic Confusion Rice Bowls.

Hawaiian fare has a moment at Outside Lands. James Beard award winning chef Sam Choy brings his Poke to the Max to the festival, serving among other popular items, Spam Musubi, whereby a slice of grilled Spam meets rice, nori, and a sweet-savory unagi glaze, while Michael Mina, Michelle Karr-Ueoka and Wade Ueoka bring their newly opened Trailblazer Tavern to VIP. Here they will dish island-style items like Kalua Pig Steam Buns. Outside Lands welcomes another Michelin-starred restaurant -- Omakase will serve Edomae-style sushi in VIP, and A16 will neighbor them, spinning their perfect, wood-fired Neapolitan pies.

Whether in Guittard's Liquid Chocolate Bars, Humphry Slocombe's Secret Breakfast Sundaes or Sharona's Chocolate Shop's Chocolate Covered S'mores, dessert has never been lacking at Outside Lands. This year, Sugar Daddy adds to the decadency with Cotton Candy Bouquets on a Churro Stickand Hookt Mini Doughnuts whips up Fresh Mini Doughnut Sundaes.

Beer Lands 2019

31 Northern California Breweries

Beer Lands bows down to Northern California brewing and celebrates the region's close-knit community. With Dave McLean, Co-Founder of Admiral Maltings and Founder of Magnolia Brewing Company and Alembic Bar at the helm, the 2019 lineup puts forth 31 breweries that showcase what Cali brewing is all about. New to the experience this year is Woods Beer Co., which, as one of the Bay Area's top urban breweries, is crafting some of the most eclectic and adventurous small batch beers on the scene. Favorites like Altamont, Alvarado Street, and Lost Coast return with everything from West Coast throwbacks to Belgian style whites.

For the second year in a row, McLean will team up with at least two breweries,Sonoma Springs and Local, in advance of the festival to make different special edition Outside Lands brews for the Beer Lands menu. Making the beers even more local, each will use Admiral Malt from organic California family farms.

Returning long-standing partners Heineken and Strongbow will be featured throughout the entire festival grounds with Strongbow Hard Ciders served alongside Heineken and Heineken Light. Local favorite Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. returns as the Official Craft Beer partner of Outside Lands, serving up its juicy party-starter Hazy Little Thing IPA-a 2018 beer of the year winner-alongside Outside Lands Saison, the legendary Pale Ale, and other Sierra Nevada specialties.

Wine Lands 2019

46 Wineries Between Wine Lands and VIP; 42 of which are from Northern California

Wine Lands uncorks 125 different wines while bringing together the most interesting, diverse and small production California wineries, presented by the very people who make them. The consummate host and vinophile, Peter Eastlake, has a flair for pairing iconic wineries and Wine Country darlings while also nodding to growing trends that are perfectly suited to a music festival, like beverages by the can (a la West + Wilder, Hoxie Spritzer, andBushido Japanese Sake). More than half of the wines on the Wine Lands menu will be priced at $10-14 per glass.

In keeping with Outside Lands' environmental ethos, bolstered by headliner Paul Simon's commitment to donating the net proceeds from his performance to San Francisco Parks Alliance and Friends of the Urban Forest, organic and biodynamic wines are well represented at Wine Lands. Bonterra, a pioneer in organic and biodynamic vineyards and winemaking for three decades, is making its festival debut and will reside alongside other Wine Lands vineyards with a deep commitment to organic farming like Preston Farm & Winery andScharffenberger Cellars.

Wine Lands is also thrilled to welcome Aperture Cellars and its star winemaker Jesse Katz, considered one of the most influential young winemakers in the U.S., Saison Cellar, with single vineyard wines from San Francisco's Michelin-starred restaurant; Seven % Solution, a forward-pushing wine collective that celebrates California's rarest grape varieties, from aglianico to mourvedre to verdelho; Edaphos by Ernest, a laboratory for small-lot Sonoma wines that utilizes off-beat varietals and incorporates ancient approaches to winemaking like clay amphora aging; DAOU Vineyards with its formidable Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon, and No Fine Print from two music industry veterans: Pat Corcoran (Chance the Rapper's Manager) and Tim Smith (Skrillex and Zedd's Manager). For the right fit, Wine Lands always makes an exception for varietals outside of California, and such is the case this year with James Beard Award Winner Terry Theise, bringing his selections of a boutique wines from Germany and Austria.

Iconic Sonoma County winery Rodney Strong Vineyards' new UPSHOT Wineswill be featured throughout the festival grounds as the premium wines offered, and as part of the "Run Free Road Trip" cross country adventure, 14 Handswill return to Outside Lands with its custom converted horse-trailer-turned-wine-bar. Festival-goers can stop by to try frosé and some of 14 Hands' favorite wines.

For the first time, Eastlake will be curating an all-star Wine Lands selection in VIP, featuring rare, much sought after Falanghina & Gamay from Arnot-Roberts, Turley's unicorn alert White Zinfandel and legendary Old Vine Zinfandel, Scribe's delicious Estate Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, and Lorenza'spure magic 2018 Rosé. Adding to the cool factor, the VIP bar will also offer a daily program of winemaker's on hand to talk about their wines.

Cocktail Magic 2019

6 Bay Area Cocktail Bars

Bar hopping within Cocktail Magic is a snap - here Outside Lands ticket-holders find a stellar mixology experience from six Bay Area bars, many of which have long topped the area's, if not the country's, best cocktail lists. This year, Cocktail Magic will not only feature more of its namesake magic -- Jon Armstrong is joined by Jade, who earned the Female Magician of the Year award, Karl Hein, and SF's own Dennis Kyriakos -- but it will also see other-worldly DJ sets and musical performances from Monster Rally, Black Taffyand ZEBUEL. Cocktails will abound -- look for 15 Romolo, which turned 21 this year, The Snug, a Pac Heights hotspot, Starline Social Club, debuting at Outside Lands from Oakland and fitting right in with its artist forward mission,Comstock Saloon, known for its cocktails with a historical slant, The Treasury, an elegant Financial District watering hole, and RadHaus, a Bavarian style beer hall within the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture that has an equally esteemable cocktail selection. Cocktails will be made with festival spirit partners: Ketel One Vodka, Bulleit Bourbon, Don Julio Tequila and Hendrick's Gin.
