This is my favorite spot in N.Y. michigan that is not in the woods or on the lakes. Every drink is a work of art, the staff is awesome, the yurts are so much fun, and we are so lucky to have this place!!
Amazing staff, amazing drinks & amazing atmosphere! Highly recommend stopping in for a craft cocktail!
Always love my time there Just need some White Russian mix
We did not have food so we can't quite rate it but we rented a yurt and it was a blast. The yurts are SO warm, ordering via the waitlist was easy and convenient, and we did a quick tasting when we came in to close out and ended up leaving with several bottles. The drinks are great and so are the spirits.
We had so much fun at Ethanology, it was a pleasure to have great cocktails served to us in a safe way in our private yurt! Thanks for the great service and delicious beverages.
It was terrific, Can't wait to go back.
We loved everything about going there, the yurt, the cocktails, the service, the fat that we could take our own food! Going to Ethanology was one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you for making it happen :) Will be back and will recommend to everyone.
Love the yurts! Hope they’re available in winters that are non-Covid. No food was available but I was able to bring my own snacks - quite lovely!!
Wonderful to see this small business putting so much effort into being excellent. They nailed it!!

Such a great place and drinks are so good. We just wish you had snacks. Will definitely be back.
The Yurt experience was amazing. So well thought out. Killer cocktails. Better do it next year. I believe the yurts will be the preferred seating in the cold months even after this pandemic mess.
Your business, and the people that work there, as well as the owners are always incredible. Keep doing what you’re doing, thank you for always providing a great experience.
We truly couldn’t have had a better time. The service was WONDERFUL. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The ambiance — I mean it doesn’t get better. Last but certainly not least, the drinks. Holy hell they were incredible. The Negroni was the best I’ve ever had and I’ve had a lot
Always an amazing experience. So grateful for this place!
Love this place, you’ll never have a bad experience! Go check it out:)
