If I'm not mistaken, a copa has a stem (pie) whereas a vaso does not. So beer would be served in a vaso and wine in a copa.

Margot no es una corrección pero mi familia de Sevilla y Madrid siempre dice trapo para tea towel. Pero ellos los solían dejar los platos para secar naturalmente

el escurridor = dish rack / drainer

También consta en el diccionario la palabra escurreplatos. No sé cuál de las dos es más común.
