Default Brewing/Liquor License

Had anyone tried to obtain a liquor license to commercially brew and sell their Homebrew? I know living in Illinois you have to jump through more hoops than a circus animal, just wanted to see if anyone has gone through the process and their thoughts on it.

No. No one has ever done that. You'd be the first to try.

If you get a commercial license you are no longer homebrewing.

Just because I wouldn't be brewing at home doesn't mean it's not my own Homebrew

Once you're licensed it's no longer homebrew, it's commercially produced beer that has its own set of laws attached to it. That's what he's saying.
