The Pivo Site (beer in 78 languages)

Via Hail the Ale! comes this fun link: Beer in 78 languages. Some artificial languages, too.

Arabic — beereh (biræ)
Chinese (Mandarin) — pi jiu
Esperanto — biero
Hawaiian — pia
Japanese — biiru
Russian — pivo

"Pivo" appears not only in Russian, but in Azerbaijani, Croatian, Czech, Macedonian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovene, and Ukrainian as well. I kind of like it.

Bonus: "awje" in Klingon (literally "root beer"… I couldn’t find just "beer").
