Like PPAULO already explained drink is also a verb but beverage is only a noun.

 

In conversations you will hear people say "I'd like a drink right now" but not "I'd like a beverage".

 

But on a restaurant menu you will see the word "beverages" as a menu topic and then below "beverages" you'll find a description of the available items.

 

If the restaurant is more specialized they can also have a specific wine menu or beer menu".
