A relatively new place, The Vault is a great addition to this area. There has always been the standard triangle of bars around Yardley/Newtown. It's nice having a brewpub close by, although it is quite small and limited. The beers they do have flowing have always been excellent however. They don't have a big selection, but it's a quality bunch most of the time. Flights are available for a tasting selection. The servers are well educated and personable. I haven't tried much of the food but they have a nice selection of small plates. Had the cheese board and a couple of their small pizzas. All of the warm fare is cooked inside their brick oven, which is kind of cool. The pizzas are bar pie size and artisinal. The inside is a main bar area, and a side room, where you can gaze upon the original vault doors. The whole bank turned brewpub idea is cool and they kept those elements in tact. They run on the premise of being non-traditional and more towards a speak easy, but no in the sense you would first imagine. There aren't any TV's or music playing. Overall This is a cool spot that anyone should check out.

Cool place with good beers and an interesting menu. it's a historic stone building that was once a bank. Inside are high ceilings with marble columns and ornate finishes you would expect from an early 1900's bank. They kept the former bank teller window grates, which wrap partially around the bar and server areas. The kegs are kept in the old the bank vault and their namesake. Big shiny steel brew kettles are around to finish the brewery look. Very cool upscale ambiance. I love when old buildings are re-purposed while maintaining some resemblance of their history. There are no TVs. There is a narrow outdoor patio with a few tables that is nice enough, but it's jammed between two buildings, there is a lot of road noise from Main Street, and not much to look at compared to the interior. I recommend staying inside. I went on a Monday night and had no problem getting a seat, but it's not a big place and I could see it getting full quickly on a weekend.

Vault had 5 beers on tap: blonde, wit, altbier, IPA, and coffee stout (nitro). I had the taster flight and the beers were all pretty good. I don't usually like nitro, but the coffee stout on nitro turned out to be my favorite. The blonde came in a close second, which surprised me because it's not usually a style I am drawn to. The wit and IPA were good. The altbier tasted a little metallic and my least favorite. All of the beers were in the 4-5% range, with the exception of the IPA at 6.4%. I had a 45 minute drive home afterward, so I appreciated having plenty of low ABV options.

The food was excellent and unique. They have apps, soup, salads, wood-fired pizzas, and sandwiches with a "foodie" flair of ingredients. My vegetarian sister who accompanied me was very pleased with the menu options as well. The prices were moderately expensive, but the portions were decent enough that we got full and lput some in a to-go box. Service was excellent and servers were accommodating of requests.

Definitely a place worth checking out if you're in the area. I will go back someday. If only The Vault was a little closer to my home. Yardley residents are lucky to have this gem.

The beer is slowly getting better since day 1. Small selection. Wood fired copper oven offers very tasty pizza. Excellent live jazz music. I suspect the beer will continue to improve. No TVs makes this a great place to actually talk and communicate.

Located at the main intersection in Yardley. Small brewpub with relatively small equipment. Only 6 beers on tap. Food is nice but expensive. Throwback look with a contemporary feel.

I was very pleasantly surprised with our visit. There was an excellent selection of beers on tap. I tried a flight; Blonde Ale, Saison, Harvest Ale and Porter and I liked all of them. Our waitress secured us a small taste of the Sweet Potato Ale that was released the next day. The food was amazing both in portion and quality. I like the feel of the old bank as it made the experience most interesting. Nestled in a small town, I will go back soon for the both the beer and the food. Their growlers look cool too.

Nice place to grab a brew and some good pizza in Yardley, PA. They have about 6 beers on tap. Love their Duck Pizza. Vibe was pretty cool as it's an old converted bank.
