I keep getting the word for oil confused with the word for beer.

A lot of people who know German do that. :)

Why is "The man is not drinking the oil" wrong when "dricker" is "is drinking"... suddenly it's wrong when it's a negative!?

That's actually accepted.

I wrote that, got the error, and from there, I jumped into this forum...

I believe you. It's possible the system made an error. You could also have had a typo and not realised. Either way, your answer is correct - and entered as accepted in the admin interface.
