Aha...
In Thailand we say: "kor beer noi"
Maow(drunk),
Fify.
(Beer Singh-Beer Thai) :)

I thought asking for a beer in Thailand was, "Koh Singha neung bong ka" does that make sense or is my drunken memory totally crap?

:) ??? Bong??? I'm lost.

In italian:
"Dammi una birra"...

But maybe is better to say "Una birra, grazie" wich is like "A beer, please"...

Cheers!

German: Ein Bier, bitte. (Ayn beer, betta. - A beer, please.) The i in bitte is a short "ee" sound and the e at the end is like a cross between a small cough and a short "a" sound.

Note though that if you try this in Germany, chances are that the waiter will either roll of a list of names requesting you to choose, asking you to pick the general variety or bring you the housebrand, variety depending upon the location you are in.

In Bavaria you'll get a Weizen, in Dresden a Lager, in Cologne a Koelsch, in Duesseldorf an Alt, ....

In Switzerland it would be 'Aes Bier, bitte' but usually you'd order the house brand by size, so more likely it'd be 'Ae Schtange, bitte' (33cl I think...). Or 'Aes Grosses, bitte' (1/2 liter).

In Brighton it's 'Hoegaarden please, hold the lime', we're that poncey.

In the pubs near where I'm from in Cumbria, just a grunt and a gesture will do.

hahah. i liked the grunt and gesture. much easier to remember! ;)

Some friends of mine usually ask for a 'Mint Tea' in their local pub.
