The Vault- Yardley PA

Made it to the Vault in Yardley, PA last night. Sampled four beers: Belgium Blonde Ale, Dunkelweisse, American Stout on cask and Coffee Stout on cask. Given the wonderful beers I have had from other local microbreweries I was somewhat disappointed with the beers. There were detectable flaws in the malt, that reminded me of some homebrews. The Dunkelweisse was lacking in flavor, the coffee stout tasted like cold coffee from a Wawa. I thought the American stout was good, and the Belgium blonde ale was very nice.

Foodwise the menu is limited but worth sampling. Similar to Tired Hands, the menu is more a small plate chacuterie pizza offering rather than a full menu. I had a "fold" their version of a wrap that is served warm. The sandwich was made with a house made whole wheat flat bread, with imported salami, brie and a fig spread. The fig overwhelmed the brie but overall the combination was a success. The sandwich was served with greens with a balsamic dressing. They use wooden disposable cutlery there and there are no plates, simply cutting boards with brown paper on them. I think this place overall will grow. It certainly is becoming a destination for a night out in Yardley as they have jazz music Thursday Friday and Saturday.
