I am one simple word, but I mean different things
One of my meanings brings great forceful swings,
The other of me, may have curve, like the first...
But only one meaning can help quench a thirst.
One of my meanings will often bring cheers,
Either of them could hold a few beers.
What word am I?

This seemed easy, especially when I saw the answer - but I just couldn't think of it! However, the world is a calmer place now - and all my mysteries are solved!

I didn't get it, it makes perfect sense. Good teaser. I like the mug answer as well.

I thought it was easy but good. Wonder what Gayle meant when she said "all her mysteries are solved"

I don't understand how mug would fit as an answer.

I'm from the UK and like heltatw, don't really use the word 'pitcher'.

I thought it was 'glass', which can just about pass for a verb!
