How beer is seen in German language

... the other day my German language teacher was telling me all alcoholic beverages take masculine gender in German (der Whisky, der Wein, der Sekt, ...) but Bier which takes neutral gender ... like bread (das Brot) ... beer is seen closer to bread than to wine.

.... it was probably just a mnemotecnic rule to help to remember such exception ... it was funny
