Have sex like you? How do you have sex, Jonesy? Dressed up like a smurf, licking a prozzy's foot or something? I don't fancy doing that.

Can I just say how much I dislike 'beer' being referred to as 'beers'?

Do you fill your car up with some petrols? Do you fill your dog's bowl with some waters? Do you go out for some coffees?

No, you don't. The reason being 'beer' is the plural of beer.

Some beers? Pah.

Where's our Grammar nazi when you need him/her? Tcha.
Beer can mean either the liquid, or the consumption unit - being an abbreviated form of pint of, or glass of beer. As it can be counted it is perfectly legitimate to pluralise. Chocolate/chocolates would be another example.

you can "grab a beer". Of course it was incorrect at some point, but seeing as how beer is now considered "a thing" it's correct.
