Of course my first question would be, "why on Earth would you say that to a professional brewer to begin with?"

But I imagine whether he was offended would depend on who said it, and the context in which it was said. Just as it can be either be a compliment or an insult, if someone tells a professional chef his food tastes home-made....

Personally I don't try to make my beer indistinguishable from commercial beer, any more than I try to make furniture that looks like I bought it from IKEA or Ethan Allen. I just work at making my beer taste good, and my furniture attractive and useful.

I think you're beating a dead horse here. Being called a homebrewer isn't an insult, unless you want it to be.

I love homebrew. I drink homebrew. I talk about homebrew. I moderate a forum about homebrew.

And, I'll be darn- right now I'm drinking a homebrew!

I have no problem with the term, obviously!
