About Old Speckled Hen

Old Speckled Hen is a beer famous for its unique character and consistent quality, an icon of British brewing which owes its name not to a bird, but to a car; a paint-spattered Featherweight Fabric Saloon. Back in the day, this was the MG factory run-around, fondly referred to as the ‘Owld Speckl’d Un’ due to its mottled appearance after several years parked under the paint shop. The beer itself was first brewed in 1979 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this iconic factory.

Old Speckled Hen has a unique, full-bodied and refined taste. A beer for drinkers keen to Seek out Something Different.
‘The Hen’ collection is an exceptional brood of award-winning English beers. What makes them so special? Several things: Respect for tradition; a Master Brewer with an understanding of his art that is second to none, balanced by the right amount of curiosity and creativity so things never stand still. All this brings heritage and craft together in the most divine manner – four Hens, four singular characters: Speckled, Hoppy, Crafty and Golden, which means the perfect flavour to suit any mood, occasion or palate.

Henry the Fox is Old Speckled Hen’s biggest fan and is always on the hunt for a Hen. When he isn’t tweeting to his thousands of followers online, writing his column in the national press or being watched by millions of people on TV screens across the country, you’ll find he enjoys nothing more than a wonderful pint of Old Speckled Hen.
