Beer Cake Help

It's my friend's 21st birthday tomorrow, and I had a brilliant idea of making chocolate beer cake. I was wondering if anyone has ever made this before and what does it taste like. I would also like some baking tips and recipes.

Thanks!

Beer contains yeast, which helps give things a rise. I googled beer cake, and looked at several recipes. I may give it a try, next time I bake a cake. Right now, I'm working on getting rid of a few pounds that I gained over the holidays.

I don't know if it qualifies as a beer cake, but in one chocolate cake I made, I substituted the liquid with a nice chocolate stout. It resulted in a very rich cake, and enhanced the flavor of the chocolate. I loved the cake, but am afraid it may have been too strong for some of my company. The alcohol evaporates out of the cake, making it legal for anyone really!
