How about pombe? Isn't that beer also?

At least were i lived (in mbeya) pombe was used instead of bia (bia isn't really swahili anyway, it's just english written in a swahili way).

But pombe doesn't only refer to beer but alcohol in general, so u guess bia is more specific... But as i said, i never actually heard bia in use..
