Default Caffeination

Does a beer made from a caffeinated beverage remain caffeinated? I realize that the amounts of caffeine are so low that a bottle of coffee porter, for example, wouldn't be the same as a cup of coffee. I'm just curious if the yeast or alcohol reacts with the caffeine.

Slainte!

I'll wait for other to check in, but I do not see any reason in the fermentation process that caffeine would be reduced or eliminated. Not necessarily relevant, but my Irish Coffee certainly retains its caffeine.

The caffeine will still be present.
