What role does "fin" play in this sentence? Could one have just said "da ieri" ? Or is "fin da" a set phrase?

I guess it means "since".

drank was considered incorrect. in most other sentences, past tense has been interchangeable with past participle.

ha ha! Duolingo's dictionary translation of "fin" is.... "fin". Tremendously helpful yet again.
