It is pisswater, but I do like Pale lager. And Baltika is the best Russian made lager that I like, and it is cheap for parties. If I am having a relaxing night, I go for German or Belgium made beers. Anything that says "Weissbier" I go for. I am currently hooked on hoegaarden, but franziskaner was my drink for years. :D
they have these giant cans with busty women. i forget the name of the beer but it starts with ж. that's the one i get. i figure if i'm gonna get drunk, at least give me something pretty to look at. i know that's completely stereotypical for a man, but meh. a man is what i am. why fight it? :)
Generally, topical information goes first, then goes the message ("new information"). Adjectives go before nouns, and о/е-ending adverbs go before verbs they modify. Therefore, adverbs and phrases desribing place and time will usually be near the beginning of the sentence, unless they are the "new information".
The verb comes after the subject, however, it comes first if the subject and the verb only make up the message together (I mean structures like "У меня есть дом", "Мне нравится музыка Моцарта").
These are the generic guidelines describing the neutral word order, which we mostly stick to. However, we allow quite a bit of variation, especially in short or clearly colloquial sentences.
I think that it is possible to compile a handy reference of "safe" word orders used in the course, because what we use are rather straightforward sentences where the most "typical" way to arrange the words is rather obvious for a native speaker.
It is not QUITE in the target language.:) A native might probably say Большое спасибо за ответы. Я благодаря вам / с вашей помощью многому научился.
Note how "thanks to you" is somewhat better than "through your help" and adverbial/numeral "много" does not really work ("многое" is what you would use).
Though, с помощью is still a useful expression.
Learn while you still can. :) A few skills were created by different contributors quite a while ago. Oftentimes I am not completely satisfied by the result, especially if the "rules" appear inconsistent or must be bent just for the sake of 2 sentences. Some use words in a pretty specific way that would not work in many other situations.
because "beer" is uncountable noun
You cannot ask for "some beer" or be drinking "some beer" using Genitive this way (you can say «У вас пива не найдётся?», though). The indeterminate arnitrary amount denoted by Genitive is limited by reasonable amount that is enough—or by how much you actually used up (but you don't know that until you used it).
Есть generally wants Nominative as a subject. Найтись ("to be found"), on the other hand, can freely use Genitive in negative sentences (which is what you saw in my example above where the question is said negated for more colloquial and polite feel).
