For all you lucky sweetlife goers, here’s another thing to look forward to at the festival: the toppings bar! Because everyone knows that a good sandwich (or salad) is nothing without toppings…
Sir Kensington’s is renowned for two inarguable staples of a good American toppings bar: gourmet ketchup and mayonnaise. Fun fact: the former is a product the company claims was unheard of before Sir Kensington’s entered the market.
Finally, don’t miss the tasty mustard from Jason’s Deli! With 5 locations in the DC Area, Jason’s Deli is committed to fresh, healthy food. Fun fact: they were the first major restaurant concept to ban artificial trans fats in the US, and to eliminate high fructose corn syrup.

Vigilante is a DC-based company inspired the coffee founder Chris Vigilante encountered in Hawaii. Their unique roasts are available all around DC and they’ll be brewing up your caffeine fix at the sweetlife festival.
Dolcezza is one of DC’s most popular gelato and coffee spots. Stop by the Market at sweetlife between sets & cool off with some of their artisanal gelato flavors like avocado honey orange, valrhona chocolate armago, and cucumber tarragon gin.
KIND Snacks has grown a lot in the past year with their selection of granola bars made from “ingredients you can see and pronounce.” We’re big fans of KIND at sweetgreen, since we share the same passion for ingredients. Grab a KIND bar in the Market on May 11 & spread some kindness.

We know spending an entire day in the sun can stir up an appetite, but don’t worry – we’ve got the necessary drinks to wash it all down. For our 21+ crowd, you’ll be able to quench your thirst at the Tavern, featuring five local breweries and a winery. Here is the official Tavern lineup:

DC Brau - with names like “The Citizen,” “The Public” and “The Corruption,” you better believe this brew reigns from Washington. Bottled in 100% recyclable aluminum cans, we were happy to add the green brewery to our list of tavern vendors.

Chocolate City Beer - each beer from this brewery has its own unique DC-inspired story. From honoring the Latin American community with their Cerveza Nacional de la Capital, to paying tribute to the monument in Anacostia with the Big Chair IPA, Chocolate City Beer offers a variety of delicious brews. And if the titles aren’t quirky enough, the labels are even cooler!

Flying Dog - the funky names and labels keep flowing with Flying Dog’s hilarious brews. The renowned Raging Bitch sits next to other favorites such as Pearl Necklace and Gonzo, and Hunter S. Thompson-inspired artwork gives these bottles true personality. You really can’t go wrong.

Mountain State Brewing Co. - as the largest full-scale micro-brewery in West Virginia, Mountain State Brewing offers five hand crafted beers: three different types of ale, an oatmeal stout and a seasonal porter.

Peak Organic - as the website reads, “Peak is a craft brewing company, dedicated to making delicious beer using local, artisan and organic ingredients.” Sounds just like sweetgreen, huh? Among the variety of 15 beers lies a beer for every season, a local series, and uniquely flavored brews such as pomegranate wheat ale and mocha stout. Locally grown grains, coffee beans, oats and hops from Maine add true flavor and character to these brews.

Boordy Vineyards- following a mantra similar to sweetgreen’s, the folks at Boordy Vineyards “treasure art and music and love to dance.” Could they be any more down for sweetlife festival? The vineyard is located in Baltimore County, Maryland, and we can’t wait to try some of their homegrown reds and whites!
