Translation:Where is the beer that I ordered?
Confused.. when to use THAT and when to use WHICH. I mean, what's wrong in-"where is the beer which I ordered". Please help me here
In my mind, "that" is the most common usage. "Which" feels like the speaker is putting a bit of distance between themselves and the object of discussion.
More about English than German: In the UK, people tend to use which where people in the US normally use that: That's the house which I like (UK). In the US, which is normally reserved for a descriptive clause: The house, which had been built in 1972, was ugly. Compare with: The house that was built in 1972 was ugly. The second sentence means the same either side of the Atlantic. The first one too, but if you remove the commas, it means the same as the second one in the UK, whereas in the US it would normally be seen as poor grammar.
