I use a recipe from a friend for tri-tip that is very popular with my ren faire friends. Cut tri-tip into approximately 5 oz servings. Place about 2 1l2 to 3 pounds of meat into a ziploc. Pour a cup of Yohsida's Gourmet Sauce and a 12 oz of bottle of Newcastle Nut Brown Ale into the bag and a generous handful of garlic cloves. Allow to marinate for 3-4 hours. Grill the meat until medium rare and enjoy.
Here's the problem. In respect for those who will be eating the meal this is served with who are in recovery from an addiction to alcohol I want to substitute something for the Newcastle. Some of my friends in recovery are sensitive to the taste of alcoholic beverages used in cooking and I want them to be able to eat without any issues.
I have not come up with any reasonable ideas for a substitute and am reaching out to eGullet for ideas. Cost is an issue. The substitute can't really cost more that a 6-pack of Newcastles.
edited to fix a typo.
