The Dodging Duck Brewhaus (830/248-3825, www.dodgingduck.com) in Boerne celebrates its fifth anniversary in August with a month of fun and charity fundraising. If you are out in the Hill Country this month, be sure to drop by for craft-brewed beer, good food, and Texas wines, and pick up a purple "5th Anniversary" T-shirt while you're there to benefit their favorite charities. All month long.
