Coopersmiths, after an East Coast return

MC was kind enough to pick up KS and I from the airport in Denver when we arrived, and once we got back into Fort Collins we headed straight for Coopersmith's. It's always weird coming back from a long trip or being away from someplace for a while, and having lunch together before parting ways was a brilliant move to ease that feeling of oddity.
For my meal I asked for the "High Plains" beef brisket sandwich, which was a moderately tender pile of sliced beef on a hoagie roll, smothered in grilled onions and barbecue sauce. There were also pretty good wedge fries, which were crisp on the outside and pleasantly mealy within.
And of course we shared a pitcher, in this case one of Cappy's Hop Top, a nitrogenated pale ale with a bag of actual hops for each glass. The flavor of the hops got overwhelming after a while though, and because the nitrogen process gave the beer smaller bubbles it edged on tasting flat. We'd probably get something else next time, but still it was great to have a beer after being on a plane all morning.
