In Greece you`ll have to say: "Μία μπύρα παρακαλώ"
You pronounce it like : "Mia bira parakalo"

In Danish:

Give me a beer = Stik mig en øl! (won't get you far!)
Give me a beer please = En øl, tak (but we seldom only order 1 at a time ^^)
Typical Danish beers are Tuborg, Carlsberg & Odense so you can easily replace the word øl with the name. Ex. En Carlsberg, tak. ;)

In Russian: daite pivo / prinesite pivo (the final –e is pronounced too!)

I believe that in Norwegian (a language that I have taken the liberty to try and teach myself) it goes..

Gi meg en øl!

Yeah, you could be polite and say

En øl, takk.

Just like the Danish guy, right??!

Oh yeah, and always ask for another...

En øl til!!
