While the Philadelphia Eagles made history on Feb. 4 by winning the Super Bowl, Midnight Oil Brewing was making some history of its own by opening the first brewery in the Glasgow area.

The new brewery, at 674 Pencader Dr., had its inception a few years ago with founder Mike Dunlap’s late-night brewing sessions, which would eventually be the inspiration for the name Midnight Oil. The beer Dunlap produced was well received by close friends, which made him decide to partner with fellow craft beer lover and long-time friend T.J. McGrath to open their own craft brewery. Joined by Joe Stickel, they spent five years planning and trying to find the perfect location before deciding on Glasgow.

The trio are excited at the prospect of welcoming weekday patrons, who can grab on-the-go food truck offerings paired with a cold beer. Participating food trucks include Wandering Chef Catering Cart, Downtime Refreshment, Natalie’s Fine Food, Uncle John’s BBQ Stand, The Hungry Spork and WiLDWiCH.
