How to ask for a 1664 - the Kronenberg kind

I have always known this beer as a sixteen sixty-four. Is it said the same way in France or something else?

Asking for a Kronenberg does not work all the time as sometimes I found several varieties on the menu.

Thanks Mez

Yes, it's the same - seize soixante-quatre.

'Une seize' will get you what you want.

Yes, "une seize" will usually do, and if your pronunciation creates confusions, say the whole thing "une seize soixante-quatre."

You would call the basic beer by the same company "une Kro."

I like une seize even better. That's easy!

It has definitely been beer weather the last few days - so hot!

I don't know, I always ask for "a Guinness"... (or "une blanche" when it's above 35°C)

'Une Sez, s'il vous plait' - works for me anywhere in France.

Sez - as in 'Sez Les'
