We’re Over It, Aren’t You?
Over the Wall is inclusive, not exclusive. Everyone is welcome. What better way to break down barriers than through food, drink, and conversation! Our meticulously handcrafted food is a subtle fusion of LatinX and Asian flavors. The bar boasts a large selection of tequilas and mezcals, fine bourbons, scotches, carefully selected wines, and ten taps of assorted local craft beers. People have been enjoying the Red Brick House as a public space since the 1940s. We invite you to sit back and enjoy, not only the company you’re with, but also the warm, friendly environment of our newest restaurant.
A Litle piece of history
This house was built in 1836. The brick is made from the clay found along the riverbank of the West Branch River. In 1940, the Red Brick House became a lodging house owned by Erling Strom, a world famous mountaineer from Norway. He followed the trend of the times converting the property into ski resort accommodations complete with a rope tow on the hill behind the house. A Ford Model A engine powered the tow.
In 1945, Strom played a major role in the creation of the Stowe Derby. He bet Sepp Ruschp, the head of Stowe’s new ski school, that his Nordic skis would be the better choice for the long course while Ruschp claimed his alpine skis would be faster. It turned out that Ruschp, on his alpine skis, won the first two Stowe Derbies. We like to believe the two remained great friends.
Friends are what we’re all about here at Over the Wall. So, raise a glass to the people next to you, behind you, in front of you, and enjoy.
