Vault Brewing Company is a start-up brewpub in Yardley, PA that does Beer, Pizza, and Jazz in a regal bank atmosphere.

We're brothers John and James Cain, the founders of Vault Brewing Company - a concept-driven brewpub launching in Yardley, PA.  We're asking for $30k right now, but that is only the bare minimum of what we need in order to open shop. Please help us turn this concept into a reality!

So what is this?

Kickstarter is a fundraising platform that enables us to raise the money we need to launch Vault Brewing by this fall from supporters like you.  In exchange for your donations, we've designed a collection of unique rewards with the help of craftsman from across the country... and we think they're pretty sweet.

Our Story

We tried the corporate grind, but got tired of it pretty quickly. Often times, instead of working, we found ourselves dreaming up bizarre entrepreneurial concepts and pitching them to one another (one even involving cactus nectar as an energy drink). Finally, we landed on a mutual passion of ours, craft beer, and decided to take a leap of faith and abruptly quit our jobs to dive headfirst into the brewpub industry. 

Finding a home 

We both wanted to stay in the area we were raised (Bucks County, PA) so, we decided on a quaint, historic town in PA called Yardley. We found a 120 year old bank with a firestone exterior, quickly put our stake in the ground, and got to work converting it into a brewery. 

Branding

For inspiration for our branding and design elements, we turned to the 120 year old vault located in the heart of the building. Inside the bank vault, there is a vault ventilator switch that, when turned, brings fresh air into the vault - a requirement for banks in the 1800s so absent-minded employees didn’t suffocate when they got locked inside. . . Naturally, this switch (pictured below) made for a unique and strong logo and  provided us our "Vault" business name.

Concept 

Our concept for the brewpub is to only do a few things, but always do them well. Our main offerings will be Beer, Pizza, and Jazz - and that's pretty much it! All of our beer is brewed in house, on a 10 BBL system that will be displayed in full view, directly behind the bar. Our gourmet pizza will be cooked in a copper-clad, wood-fired oven that will be shielded by a Victorian, wrought-iron fence in the middle of the restaurant. We will have live jazz three nights a week, featuring local and big name musicians. 

The Atmosphere

Our interior design will be reminiscent of a regal bank in the roaring 20's. Some elements of our decor will include a commissioned six-foot painting, a set of wrought-iron doors from a bank in Cairo, low-hanging old world chandeliers, a tin ceiling, and, of course, our nine brewing tanks which will be elevated, exposed, and illuminated behind the bar.  What you won’t find at the Vault though, are TVs, smoking areas, crowded barstools, mixed drinks, and obnoxious bar music.  While those can be appropriate for some establishments, our goal is to elevate the experience above the typical “bar” scene.

We... need your help

We are mid-way in our project, but things are getting expensive. To do this project right, we need to invest substantially in our brewing equipment, copper oven, and our striking interior design. The money raised from this Kickstarter project will help us pay for this. Our goal is to raise $30,000 in just five weeks.
