Hebrew translation:birtzoni lekabel bira bevakasha
Explanation:
which means: I would like to get a beer please.
Or you could say efshar lekabel bira bevakasha? (could I have a beer please?).
I want a draught beer = ani mevakesh bira me'chavit (which means actually "I am asking for draught beer," but this is how you would say it in Hebrew).
Names of Israeli beers:
Maccabee (still exsits)
Goldstar (a darker beer)
Nesher (no draught, only bottles and usually is not served in pubs and restaurants. My favourite.)
Cheers (lechayim)

Many thanks for both of you - both helped me entirely. Unfortunately I only can give points to one. My criterion: ladies first. And order or arrival - the lady.
Thank you Shalom.
