Biru and Bi-ru

ビル and ビール sound very similar but meanings are completely different. ビル is a shortened word for ビルディング/birudingu (building – usually tall concrete buildings. Other style buildings are not usually called ビル) and ビール/bi-ru is beer.

えきビルでビールをのみます means “I drink beer in the station building.”
