Overall, for a small brewery in Shelby Township I frequent this brewery. I like that they always have something new brewing. They have great food, wine and soda. It feels though most of the food is homemade and delicious. I have not had a beer here I didn't like. Hopefully they grow and stay in business I love craft breweries.

Atmosphere - simple decor, music seemed like a simple internet radio and the volume was low enough that you could have a conversation.
Quality - Food, wine, and beer all good.
Service - waitress was attentive and punctual.
Selection - menu is pretty simple, but that's fine when you are doing what you do well.
Food - The pizza was very good. We had the chicken artichoke with feta and we ate until we were over full. They use a thin crust style underneath, but near the edge it was thick and pretzel-like. Great stuff!
Value - Prices were very reasonable. We were there on a Wednesday and XL pizza was half off.

The food specials are great, especially for lunch, and the wheat pizza with the bold and spicy beer sauce is fantastic. I looked through the older reviews for Sherwood and completely agree with what people were saying, decent basic beer and pretty good bar food were very accurate a few years ago, but things have definitely turned around. We used to visit occasionally but an improved staff, better menu and greatly improved beer list convinced us to become lifetime members. They went from brewing your garden variety ale, stout, ipa etc...to having things like pumpernickel stout, garlic ale and their evil IPA which were all quite good. The draft list is still small at times but we go quite frequently and there is always something new on the menu worth trying. Their seasonal beers especially have come a long way and their anniversary beers are not to be missed.

Visited this place on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn't terribly busy and there was room for my group of five to sit at the bar.
The location is in a strip mall in a center location. Inside was done in a faux industrial style with exposed ductwork and high ceilings. A small stage was near the rear center. A larger TV was near the front door with some lounge chairs and a sofa for watching sports. Could be a VIP type setting.
There were seven beers on tap (Buxom Blondde had just been spent before we came in, we were told). The sampler called for six beers so I bought the seventh to try all the offerings.
They had three different stouts (Irish, coffee, and mole). The Irish stout was decent, a little more bitter than I expected. Same could be said for the coffee stout. The bitterness kind of took away from the coffee flavors. Both would have fared better if on a nitro tap which was unavailable from what I could tell.
Most of my companions found the Production Line Red to be their favorite, but mine was the Mole stout. Brewed with chipotles, the beer was black with a red hue. I picked up cocoa, powdered baker's chocolate and a flash of acidity or tomatoes on the nose. The beer was smooth and somewhat heavy and finished with a strong spicy bite. It was an excellent example of some of the unique things being brewed lately.
Was surpised to see that of the eight beers listed, none were an IPA. Given the recent popularity of the style, it was curious to see that none were offered at the time we were there.
Mary, our bartender, was very attentive to us, and conversational. She definitely enjoys what she does and is good at it. Knowledgable about what was offered and wasn't shy about finding out an answer to a question she didn't know.
The food was pretty good and very fairly priced. The lunch menu had a lot of offerings. Most of the group picked the burger and fries special for $3.
Overall a very nice little place. Will definitely return.

This place is definitely worth a stop while in Michigan. It is set in a strip mall (the only off-putting thing about it) and has a laid-back atmosphere. There are several TVs showing sports games. There were 6 beers on tap and each one was pretty solid, especially the Jamocha Stout and Pumpernickel Stout. I didn't try any of the food so I can't comment on that. To sum, this is a small, laid-back, relaxed locale with quality beer.
(However we did get kicked out around 4pm on a Sunday afternoon because it was Father's Day, which was certainly odd...)

Located in a stip mall, Sherwood has a different feel to it than other brewpubs. It's long and narrow inside (think strip mall store), and a little bare. As you enter you can see the brewing area from outside. Half walls inside restrict brewing area view. We arrived on a snowy Friday in January around 7pm. Small crowd. They have 3-4 big tv's, a bar in the middle and tables scattered around (some were tall tables with stools and the other were shorter with normal chairs) Couch and a few other plush chairs surrounded a tv in the corner. Service was great. Selection minimal. They had 4 Menu Beers, 3 Rotating Beers. Closest beer to the season was a pumpkin porter. Prices average. Food selection typical for brewpub, but very good. I reviewed 2 beers. Buxom Blondde good, Impish Amber horrible. Will try it one more time. Hope they have a bigger selection next time and better brews.

The wife and I stopped here on a recent trip to Michigan. Sherwood is just down the road from my sister's place so it was convenient. The place is in a small shopping plaza off some fairly high traffic roads. The interior is a wide open hall-like area with the brew room up front, the bar in the center and the kitchen along the back along the wall. We went for lunch and the place was pretty empty. The bartender was friendly and set us up with beers immediately. We chatted a bit and ordered lunch. The beer was very clean, tasty and well done. The food was also very good. We plan on stopping back on future visits to Michigan and look forward to seeing them at Michigan Beer Festival this year.

Having just gotten into the brewpub scene, I'm a little hesitant to post a review so soon... but I know what I like.
It's always refreshing to see new businesses popping up around the area, especially those that cater to beer lovers. Sherwood Brewing Company may be relatively new to the scene, but they've got ALL the right ideas.
I've stopped in a few times recently, and the brew, the food, and the waitstaff have been nothing but great. While they only have about 7-8 beers on tap, they do a good job at representing the style. I tried their Pumpkin Porter, Irish Stout, Alaskan Sister Wit, and Production Line Red. Every beer was completely different, and represented its style well. Also, the bartenders did a fantastic job at making sure my drinks were full.
I only tried some beer battered wings (which were great), but lots of parties around me were ordering pizza that looked AMAZING. I'm pretty stoked to get in there and have a slice.
Basically, Sherwood is a wonderful spot to go if you're looking for a tastey bite, as well as a well crafted beer. They're also located in a spot tucked away from the hustle of M59, for easy access.
I'll be returning :)

Sherwood is a great place to go when you live right around that area. I like to go there and grab a pint of the IPA or Irish Stout, which both are pretty tasty. The atmosphere is nice, but seems a little barren, possibly from the lack of a ceiling. They have a big projector which is great for watching sports, and the bar is decent size as well. I have not tried any of the food, but I have heard the Pizza is great. The brewmaster is a very nice guy, and will answer any questions you have, even about upcoming brews. The bartenders work well together, and service is great. Overall, great place to go and hangout, plus they have WiFi free, so college students- "go grab a beer and write that paper." I like going here, definitely worth a try in my book.
