nós bebemos

I understand that this may very well be the past tense as well, but the default answer should be, I think "We drink" not "We drank," because this is confusing in conflict with the other tenses. I think, however, "We drank" should be accepted too, be because they are the same conjugation.

Agreed, both present and past tense should be accepted.

Also, I don't remember the exact sentence (will update this post If I encounter it again) but in some cases duolingo wants the future tense although the verb clearly isn't in future tense but in the present/past tense.

That was a curve ball all right!

When we use something everyday we use the present. Nós bebemos chá If you are talking about the past we can say. Nós bebemos cerveja com nossos amigos ontem.
