I wonder if the beer is really needed (with its yeast) as a leavener. Three cups of flour and three teaspoonfuls of baking powder sound like a regular ratio of flour to b. powder.
Of course, the beer might be for the taste. And it would be substitutable.
I'm allergic to beer, so my fingers are crossed.

I'm not an expert, but most beer does not have active yeast in it (bud light, coors, etc . . .). A bottle conditioned beer does have some yeast added to the bottle before it is sealed, but most beers are not like this. Hope this helps.
