One of the guards has both dwarven beer, and ice in his waterskin, and is still able to drink the beer.  I'm not sure how the ice got in there, but cold beer is never a bad thing.

Water in containers freezes into ice. I guess he put some water in there to water some plump helmets or something.

I had a soldier with glass vial full of golden salve and beer. Unfortunately, he took the vial with him when he conquered a site and I can't get it back.

I have a theory.
1) Water in containers can freeze.
2) Waterskin which contains no drinkable liquids gets refilled.

If the guard somehow decided to fill the waterskin with water the first time, then it may have frozen due to cold weather and consequently received the beer.  The biggest problem in this theory is that it requires the military to switch from water to alcohol, which you may have done manually or which may be done automatically depending on availability.

When filling a double cistern, connected at the lowest level, the filling side will fill all the way to 7/7 in every tile before a single unit of water is pressurized to the other side of the U-bend.  This seems to mostly just affect the placement of water sensing pressure plates.

Edit: More fluid findings:
Minecarts can be filled with magma by magma entering their location from the same Z-level, it does not have to come down from above.  So a tunnel filled with minecarts, that is then dug horizontally into a magma sea, will fill all those minecarts completely.  Less pumps needed!
