Old Speckled Hen

"Old Speckled Hen" was first brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary (1979)of the MG car factory in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Named after an old MG car which was used as the factory run around, they 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 ‘Old Speckl’d Un’. This turned into "Old Speckled Hen" when the beer was unveiled.

Strong Suffolk
It's a blend of two ales: Old 5X , which is brewed to the maximum strength possible (around 12% abv) and left to mature in 100-barrel oak vats for a minimum of two years, and BPA, a dark, full-bodied freshly brewed beer which is added just before bottling. The result is a unique beer – strong (6% abv), dark, fruity, oaky and very special.
