This December, Mohegan Sun launched its winter ale, Cold Moon. This flavorful winter warmer attributes its complex malt sweetness to bitter hops and its full body character. Cold Moon is the second flavor of six located throughout Mohegan Sun.

"December marks Cold Moon's tenth year of service at Mohegan Sun," said Joel Johnson, Brew Pub Manager at Mohegan Sun. "This dark strong English roasted malt melt has a refreshingly smooth and heavy finish that our guests look forward to every holiday season."

Additionally, Sachem Ale and Mohegan Lager are on-tap 365 days a year and the remaining two flavors, Peeping Frog Ale and Thunder Moon Lager, are seasonal brews.

Guests looking for Mohegan Sun's Hunting Moon can find it at the following locations: The Brew Pub at Mohegan Sun, Hall of the Lost Tribes, The Cove Bar, The Longhouse, Pompeii & Caesar, Bamboo Forest, Seasons Buffet, The Lodge Bar, Wolf Den Bar & Showroom, Leffingwells Martini Bar, Birches Bar & Grill, Taughannick Falls Bar and the East Wind Bar located in Casino of the Wind. Hunting Moon will be available until December.

Mohegan Sun, owned by the Mohegan Tribe, is one of the largest, most distinctive and spectacular entertainment, gaming, shopping and meeting destinations in the United States. Situated on 240 acres along the Thames River in scenic southeastern Connecticut, Mohegan Sun is within easy access of New York, Boston, Hartford and Providence and located 15 minutes from the museums, antique shops and waterfront of Mystic Country.
