The R56 release notes state: "Beer and Wine, which have relatively short maturation periods of 3 and 7 days respectively, are now balanced for a profitability more in line with other agricultural products." However, as I noted in https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...numbers-port-hates-money.135320/#post-1099357 this isn't really an accurate statement. With agriculture products, the vast majority return a profit if you purchase the water to grow the crops. With brewing, you only make a profit if you manually harvest all of the water necessary for every stage of the process (growing the crops as well as creating the brewing specific ingredients). So it really is not in line with agriculture. And even if you harvest the water, the profit is not remotely close to what you'd make just selling the raw wheat, etc to a vendor.
