Ummmm...I dont like beer at all, but what about just making your regular buttercream and using the beer as the liquid? I dont know if that would be good or not as the thought of beer and frosting sounds gross to me, but as I said I dont like beer. I often will use coffee as the liquid in my bc, pretty much any liquid can be used.

Loranne's makes a champagne flavor but I have never tasted it. I usually use 1 dram of any flavor in my icing if it a large batch and the taste is sufficient. A dram is about $2.00.
You can also try a malt flavoring or extract. If you are going to use beer I would use a flat one and see how that works out.
I have made the Chocolate Guinesse cake and just used Chocolate butteream icing and it was awesome! It's a great cake that your dad will most definitely enjoy if this is the same one.

If you find a good recipe let me know, I'd be very interested!!

Just add Guinesse to the buttercream, small amounts at a time and keep adding until it's right.

i seem to remember the woman on amazing wedding cakes actually putting the beer on the stove and boiling it to reduce it a bit? but i can't remember exactly what she did after that. sorry that was probably no help whatsoever!
