Visited here in late November ’15 on a Monday evening while in the area for business. Quaint little setting, appears to be former residence. Small bar to sit at, room for about for or five. Have only about five of their own on tap, available in a sample, half pints or pints and I saw them filling growlers as well. Beer was serviceable, no boundary stretchers. Food has kind of a game oriented menu with some German favorites thrown in . I had quail, a first for me and enjoyed it. Service left just a bit to be desired, would have gone for a third half pint if someone would have noticed my empty glass.

Brewery taps only for beer (a couple cider taps as well), but a decent variety and the food was great by itself,but even better with the beer. Ducky Hour too! (happy hour)
Brewpub near SATX. Food is good. Beer were decent. Overall, a worthwhile visit. Your standard brewpub.

Visited October 2011.
Stopped in for dinner while out in San Antonio. I’m not sure how to pronounce the name of the city but in my head I’m still laughing about going to Boo-urns. Also, while driving along the river it became obivous why this place is called Dodging Duck. There are tons of geese and ducks all over the place and sometimes they run across the street... I didn’t see any get hit but I can imagine that there is a fair amount of swerving going on.
The restaurant is an interesting set up with several rooms and plenty of out door seating. I chose the patio. This seems like a large one story house converted to a restaurant judging by the floor plan. The food was alright as was the beer and service. They only had four beers on tap and two were seasonal (Ducktoberfest and Pumpkinhead) along with an Irish red and an IPA. Kind of an odd combo but at least a diverse lineup. All around an average place but in a very nice setting and kind of far away from other beer destinations. Glad I went but it’s a bit too far away from anywhere I’ll be visiting (probably) to return.
Nice location on the river and easy to get to. Small rooms with not many views, but there ris nice seating outside. The pale ale and th IPA were my favorites of the evening. The food was excellant, but al-in-all it was a bit expensive. Pints were $4.95 and the desert was $8.95. The desert was good but for the size it could have been less expensive.
Stopped in for a late lunch.
Had a couple brews at the bar while waiting for a table.
The IPA and the Steam Style Ale were very good. The Winter stle brew with pecans, cinnamon and sweet malts was wonderful but filling.
Food was tasty, and very good portion size. The chili was some of the best I have had in quite awhile. Sandwiches were very fresh and filling.
Service was efficient and friendly.
It’s a smaller place, so be prepared a wait when busy. The location being on the river is wonderful.
Will definitely be back again.
A very nice little brewpub in Boerne, about 20 minutes outside of NE San Antonio (Fiesta Texas, UTSA area). Located on River Road near Cibolo Creek, Dodging Duck has a nice outdoor patio as well as seating inside. There are typically four house beers available as well as a nice selection of wine. The beers are available in 4 ounce samplers, half pints and full pints, and can be filled in growlers for take home. The food is nothing too fancy but is pretty good. Definitely place worthy of stopping if you are driving down I-10 and are passing through Boerne.
i really liked this place, but their do lose points because their beer is only just above brewpub quality and their only had 3 beers on tap.. but the onion rings are really fuckin tasty and the service is very good and warm .. a quiet brewpub that just need a a few more brews on tap, other than that...
Really neat little brewpub in a very small town 30 minutes outside San Antonio. Small town mom-and-pop feel. The bartender Chloe gave us awesome service. All we bought was a sampler, but she acted like we’d spent $100 in the place. Her and many of the staff are headed to GABF this year so it’s obvious this place employs beer people. The beer itself is evident of a small town: probably good in the neighborhood, but overall just ok. Selection was only the house beers, which is fine, but would be nice to see 6+ at any brewpub regardless of size. Will definitely go back to sample others next time I’m in town and to try the food.
