Irish Lamb Stew

What would be a nonalcoholic substitute for Stout Beer? Would the nutrients change if I used coconut oil instead of olive oil? I love extra virgin olive oil but I don't cook with it! Dietitian comment: You could substitute with any nonalcoholic beer. Coconut oil instead of olive oil is fine--there's only 1 tablespoon.
