I have been away from Brewing for about a year now. Last weekend, went on a Breakfust Ride with a buddy of mine and we wound up, when the ride was over at about 10:30 AM in his Garage, Brewing. Brewed a Simple AG Brown Ale Recipe, but the Homebrew I Drank (He has a fridge with his kegged beer in it on Tap), made me stop and think why the hell I have not been Brewing. Last night, I Mini Mashed an American Pale ale. Next Weekend, an AG Lucknow Clone. What I am getting to is that yes, I have the opinion that our Home brewed Beer is every bit as good, and more times than not, Better then Off the shelf beer.
Congrats on how your Batch turned out.
