VAULT Brewing Company
10 S. Main Street
Yardley, PA 19067
HIS and HERs decided to check out the newer brewery on Main Street in Yardley. HERs lived in Yardley for a few years and they both love the quaint town.
|the Look||Rustic, upscale Industrial look. The wood burning oven was BEAUTIFUL. All copper. The kitchen and dining area were divided by wrought iron bars. This used to be an old bank.||This is NOT your normal brewery.. Modern interpenetration of the prohibition era. Loved the look and feel. The over-sized lanterns as chandeliers were fantastic. The heavy iron chairs were molded to your butt and very comfy. I enjoyed being able to see inside the kitchen. Very open and friendly atmosphere.They kept with the old bank/vault visual. When you walk in there are safety deposit boxes lining the entrance and a gate. Unique and creative.|

|Belgium Wit (4.7%)||Rating: 3.5
Believe it or not, very smooth taste and flavor. Great aftertaste. Is that wheat I’m tasting? (HERs: “Yes, good job!”) It is wheat! I like this. Its a heavy lingering wheat flavor.
This beer encompasses everything i love about a Wit beer. It is light but with well rounded flavors. Strong lemon and orange citrus notes. Extremely drinkable!! Refreshing on a summer day. The wheat lingers slightly in a favorable way. One of my favorites.I can’t believe HIS likes this!!
|Pale Ale (5%)||Rating: H0ppy
one word: Hoppy…. Done. umm.. (nice portion?)
Fruity, mild hops with that slight grassy/crisp flavor i enjoy. Great spring beer! Well, its an ale.. Drink this now! Great timing. Nice spice to the finish.
|Double IPA (8.7%)||Rating: H0ppy
Hoppy.. (nice portion?)
YUM! Moderate hops, not overpowering, especially considering the ABV is high. Would not have guessed. Great combination of fruit and hops. Very fruity nose, lingers slightly. Well balanced.
|ESB (5.8%)||Rating: 4
Like this! Very smooth. Mild taste. Not getting the bitter. But what do i know? I just know what I like, and i LIKE this!
Room temp. Very low carbonation. Lingers… (nice portion?)
|Dry Stout (4.0%)||Rating: 4
Is that coffee? Noo… is it? coffee? I have no idea about beer.. (HERs “Yes! Good job!”(Big smile spreads across HIS face)
Flavors start smooth and soft the get bolder. Roasted coffee kicks in a the end. Nice flavor journey. Good clean finish, very enjoyable and makes you want to keep drinking. One of the best dry stouts i’ve had. Very rich roasty malt and a thick white head……
|Russian Imperial Stout (8.5%)||Rating: 2
Smell the coffee aroma, bitter coffee, dark.
LOVE this… wonderful consistent flavor. Reminds me of my favorite Old Rasputin.. Im getting dark chocolate, very heavy espresso, roasty malt. Very rich.
