When you think about a brewpub, chances are good that you're not envisioning something like Vault Brewing Company. And that's intentional - James and the other owners have sought to create a destination that defies the conventional wisdoms of normal bars and restaurants. After a few months of being open, it's safe to say they have succeeded.
Vault Brewing Company occupies the previous home of several banks dating back to 1889; the original 8,000lb vault door now guards a select bevy of kegs and aging barrels. All brewing is done on-site; you can almost reach out and touch the fermenters while sitting at the bar. Aside from drinking the wort, that's as fresh as you can get.
Across the main room is what James affectionately calls "the Bentley of ovens." It really is a visual centerpiece and it provides copious amounts of amazing smoky aroma. Their pizzas are outstanding - the Empty Bucket favorite is the Brown Sugar Buffalo. My mouth waters just thinking about it.
This video was shot on the Black Magic Cinema Camera. It was our second major production with the camera and it really allowed us to get a feel for how it performs in low light situations. It's not a 5D but it still produces a very respectable image. And the flexibility of 12-bit raw is quite liberating even when an artistic grade is not required.
