German: Ein Bier, bitte.

Greek (ancient): Aiteo te didonai me oinon krithinon pronounced "Itao tay deadòni may oinòn crithinòn" means literally "I beg you to give me a beer." Or try Didou me oinon krithinon ("Gimme a beer!") pronounced "Deadoo may oinòn crithinón" if you prefer the language of that alternate universe version of myself that Duncan dreamed up!
