Old Speckled ‘Hunt For a Hen’


prawn beer

Old Speckled Hen is celebrating Easter this year by bringing its much-loved ale to London in a characteristically cunning style, that’s set to test the grey matter and get those bushy tails wagging.

The UK’s number one ale brand will be burying its Hunt for a Hen Travelling Bar in a secret location in London on Saturday 4th April and rewarding those who find it with a free pint of its full, smooth flavoured ale, in exchange for a social post.

The  social ‘Hunt’ will be taking place across four secret locations in the UK throughout March and Easter weekend with clues appearing for London online from Monday 30th March.

All those up for the ‘aleventure’ just need to follow @SpeckledHenry on Twitter and keep a beady eye out for his clue dropping with the dedicated hashtag #huntforahen. It’s then up to you to crack the clues and head to the secret location to reep the Ale reward – it won’t be hard to miss!

Free pints won’t be all that’s on offer; there will also be the opportunity for dedicated explorers to boost their trophy cabinets with the Old Speckled Hen ‘Hen Hunt’ competition. With prizes on offer including the chance to win free beer and even up to £1,000 in cash, as well as thousands of other exciting prizes, fans would be a fool not to seek out something different this Easter.
