You want "receptacle" as a general word, but for beer it's a glass, mug or stein, normally

I'd say "container" for the generic word. A recipient is a person who receives (something), e.g. a letter, a notice, a bill, a gift.

I'd say "overflowing".


Here's an alternation you should know.

The beer overflowed the mug. ~ The mug overflowed with beer.

The coffee overflowed the cup. ~ The cup overflowed with coffee.
