Order beer in 59 languages

A couple of techies walk into a bar...a foreign bar, and realize they have no idea how to order beer in Czech. That's the dilemma the founders of Pivo found themselves in when visiting Prague. Their solution? Develop an iPhone app that teaches people how to order beer in 59 different languages.

Thus, Pivo was born. Simply open the app and swipe to your desired language and you're ready to order. The app spells out how to order a beer in the desired language and also provides proper pronunciation so you, hopefully, don't butcher the bartenders native language. If you're really worried about getting it right you can even watch videos and listen to audio recorded by native speakers of the language. From Afrikaan to Zulu, Pivo has your thirst quenched.
