I would just replace the recipe. Really no good reason to add beer to brownies that I can think of.
Looks to me like whoever came up with it was just trying to figure out how to get Guinness into a recipe.
Should have made chili instead (and add chocolate & Guinness to it)

You can replace apples with oranges if you really feel like it.




"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

any good rich dark beer without too much hops (makes it bitter) should work fine. I use dark beer all the time in chilli and in beef stew.

That recipe looks good - might try it for St Patty's day!
Guinness and chocolate go together really well, but you can't replace the beer in that particular recipe with liquor. Guinness is pretty low in alcohol content, for starters. Different chemistry. Also, with 4 eggs and 1 1/4 cup of liquid that recipe is more like cake than brownies. So you could replace it with another stout, but not with another alcoholic beverage.

Do you have a liquor at home that you want to use in brownies? There are lots of good boozy brownie recipes:
Bourbon (my personal favorite), Kahlua, amaretto, Grand Marnier, Chambord....lots of liquors are good in brownies.

Granny's recipe for Rum Cookies

Open fifth of rum.
Drink a tot to make sure it's good.
Get out eggs, butter, flour, sugar
Drink another tot of rum to make sure it's breathed enough.
Look at eggs, butter, flour, sugar
Drink another tot or two of rum. It might not be ready to be used.

Realize the rum's all gone.

Put eggs back in the henhouse, butter back in the cow, toss the flour in the air.

Go get another fifth of rum.

Not a drinker so i don't know the difference. Rum raisin is the "hardest" liquor I have experienced ... my gene doesn't allow me to digest alcohol.

But you're OK with it in baked goods?

This looks good, if it works for you...Has many of the same ingredients as your other recipe, but rum instead (and some coffee)

A lot of chocolate recipes call for the addition of beer. Stouts typically have dark chocolate or coffee undertones, and this helps keep the overall flavor from being diluted by other liquids like water or milk. I made this Guinness cake last year, and it was awesome.

Rum is great, but it's stronger and is going to be more noticeable than beer. You might want to dial it back, as 1 1/4 cup of it may be overwhelming. You could probably use a couple liquor shots and the rest milk.

The fundamental flavor in that recipe is the combo of guinness and chocolate. There is really no substitute for guinness other than another stout. Switching to a liquor like rum is not going to give you anything close to that flavor combination, for obvious reasons. If you want to cook something with rum find a different recipe.

Of course you can substitute.

and if you substitute cake for brownies it will taste a little different, too

(just in case that isn't obvious)

just don't mess with substituting the whipped cream
you'll ruin it
