So I understand that "Beviamo" is "We drink".

Is there any other usage that specifically mean "Let us drink"?

Also, while I understand that this is not covered yet, what would "We drank" be?

Thanks in advance!

Use an online verb conjugator... ;)

"Beviamo" = "We drink" or "Let's drink"

"Noi beviamo" = "We drink" only (also the subjunctive, but I wouldn't go that far)

Anyway... We drank can be "noi abbiamo bevuto" or "noi bevemmo". In Northern Italy, "abbiamo bevuto" is rather used, in Southern Italy "bevemmo" is used more often. But they are both correct! :)
