Old Speckled Hen
First brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the MG car factory. Named after an old MG car which was used as the factory run around, the chaps in the factory would park the old MG Featherweight Fabric Saloon outside the paint shop where it would normally get spattered in paint and so it became known as the ‘Owld Speckl’d Un’.
This became 'Old Speckled Hen’ when the beer was unveiled. Since then the finely balanced beer with a distinctive rich, malty taste and fruity aroma has attracted many fans, and I’m certainly one of them.
