Here is my best explanation:

'plant' is the definition.
(aloe is a kind of plant)

'beer gets nothing' is the wordplay.
'beer' becomes 'ale' (I've seen this before**).
'gets' means one lot of letters goes inside another (gets can mean captures or absorbs).
'nothing' becomes 'o' (looks like zero - 0).
'ale' placed around 'o' is 'ALOE'.

'from' is the link.
