Make a graph. On the horizontal axis, it is beer. It goes from zero to 40. Mark the point 419/12. That is the maximum number of beer.

On the vertical axis, wine, it goes from zero to 15. mark the point 419/35, that is max wine.

Connect the two points with a line. The optimal will be on that line.
