One of Brian Finke’s photographs for National Geographic was listed among their best photographs for 2017:

Outside a chicheria in Lamay, Peru, in the Sacred Valley of the Inca Empire, Lucio Chávez Díaz drinks a glass of chicha frutillada, a corn beer flavored with strawberries. The pure beers, wines, and spirits of today are a historical exception; alcoholic beverages have long been doctored with everything from pine needles to tree resins to honey.

This photo was originally published in “Our 9,000-Year Love Affair With Booze,” in February 2017.
