Explanation:
- Принесите, пожалуйста, пива
- Мне пива, пожалуйста
- Я бы выпил пива
- Мне бы пивка
- Подайте, пожалуйста, пива (стакан, бутылку, фужер) NAME

As for beer names, I would like to indicate them as follows:
Балтика
Эфес Пильзнер
Три медведя
Солодов
Бочкарев
Гёссер
Старый Мельник
etc.

Please note that question
У ВАС НЕТ ПИВО
is drastically wrong!
When one wishes something, he/she must state:
Воды
Пива
Денег
Славы
but not
Вода
Пиво
etc.

Yours,
Tagir.
