Bier zum Mittagessen ist sinnvoll = Bier mit Mittagessen ist sinnvoll ?

I guess it does. Just a different way to say it. My opinion.

The correct translation is stated as "Beer as lunch is sensible." or "Beer with lunch is wise." To me, this sounds like the beer is the main object but shouldn't it be lunch as the main object.

What about "Beer to the lunch is sensible." or "Lunch with beer is sensible"?

Nah, Bier is the main object. It's the thing that is sensible/wise. "Bier (zum Mittagsessen) ist sinnvoll."

The best thing about this is that 'sinnvoll' sounds and looks a LOT like 'sinful'
