When Begbie throws the beer glass behind him over the the balcony, it has less than a quarter of beer still left in the glass. Then after the cut-scene with Tommy telling the truth about the Pool Table incident, the scene continues & is then immediately followed by another shot with an empty, & dry looking beer glass. It isn't even wet looking, let alone spilling the small amount of beer that was previously left in the glass when Begbie chucked it over.

Revealing mistakes

When Tommy wants to try heroin and presents the folded banknote to Renton (seen from both Renton's and Tommy's point of view), the imagery partly visible on one side of the folded note is not consistent with that on the other side.
