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 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.

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.

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
