Yeah, you're right. It wouldn't be homebrew unless you lived in your cafe, which if I had one, I probably would end up on a cot in the back. I actually worked in a cafe where the alcoholic owner would sleep in the office when his wife kicked him out. It was charming but that's another story.
I'll ask the question like this. Could a cafe that was licensed with a running kitchen sell brew they made using homebrew techniques? Or is homebrew defined by the technique, no matter where it occurs?
I'm sure the answer may change from region to region, but this is California, so I'm assuming not without some crazy alcoholic production license that would be cost prohibitive. I mean, at that point you might as well become a brewpub with microbrew production techniques.
