    Sounds like a diminutive of пиво.

    Well...yeah.

    Edit: This is how I saw it being used, though: ...чтоб потом попить пивка. Is that the genitive of something perhaps? Because it doesn't look much like an accussative of anything drinkable. I looked for пивок too (it seemed reasonable that it would have a пивка genitive) but no luck.

    I don't know. I just asked two Russians and they said it'd just not change in the accusative. I guess since the original is neuter.

    Попить пивка = to drink [a little quantity of] beer.
    The same partitive genitive, we discussed many times before.
