Subject: Beer Drinkers Phrasebook

Well, now that the Beer Judge Exam Study Guide is done, I need to find
something else to keep me off the streets.

For about a year now, I have been discussing the idea of compiling a beer
drinkers phrasebook. Folks seem to like the idea.

This would be a collection of about 50 phrases and words in 6 or so languages
that are of particular interest to the traveling beer drinker. The idea would
be to create a companion to the standard tourist phrasebooks.

Here are some examples to get you thinking:

Languages:

American
English
German
French
Flemish
Dutch

Phrases:

I would like a _____ beer.
I would like a table for ___ please.
I would like my check please.
I am looking for a bar/restaurant that serves _____.
I am buzzed.
I am drunk.
Hello, I am a rich American.
May I buy you a beer?
Would you recommend a beer?
Did you hear the one about _____?
Where is a good beer bar/store?
Where is a good brewery?
Where is this address?
Where can I exchange my currency?
Where is the toilet?
My hovercraft is full of eels.
Is this the train/bus to _____?
Which is the train/bus to _____?
I'd like to buy an antacid/aspirin/condom.
I've fallen and I can't get up.

Misc:

Brewing terms
How to count
Tipping
Toilet fees
Jokes

You get the idea.

I am looking for more suggestions, but more importantly, I need some
volunteers to do the actual translations. There is no deadline, but I will
have an opportunity to try some Dutch, Flemish, and French phrases on March
20th.

The Phrasebook would be distributed via HBD, and like the Study Guide,
non-commercial reproduction of the Phrasebook would be allowed with proper
credit.
