"Nope," says I, surprised that such a comely lass would venture so close to a grizzled old guy in a patch-emblazoned motorcycle vest.
And she climbed up on the barstool. I went back to posting FaceBook and Twitter pictures of this outstanding 13% collaboration beer (which speaks volumes about my geezer priorities), and she ordered hers.
"I'd like some Lindemann's Framboise in the bottom of an Allagash White, " she told Tim Gannon, the barman.

"Plain beer isn't sweet enough, and the Framboise makes it better."

Meeting and chatting with Andrea Lynn at Isaac Newton's proves--once again-- the point of this blog: Good Pubs, Good Beer, Good People.
