This is across town from me but, luckily for me, my lady works around the corner from Bishopís so I get to stop in more often than I normally would be able. Narrow and deep like many Philly bars. The actual bar is right as you walk in and table seating in the rear. Constantly rotating tap list tends to bring in locals, nationals, and seasonals. I can always find something quality on. Food is pub fare with a few fun surprises. Barkeepers have always been quick with a drink and friendly, too. One of my favorites in Fairmount.

Had brunch there...nice brunch menu...small but very tasty and fair prices. Had a great breakfast burrito! Staff was super nice...seems like a laid back place. Limited amount of taps and bottles but it seems they try to keep a little something from many craft styles available. Outside seating on the sidewalk available.

We stopped in early afternoon/late morning on a sunday for a quick bite to eat and a few beers after we realized we were in the viscinity and had never been... Small but quality selection of beers, seems like they keep it tight, but offer something for everyone... Very friendly staff, people people, seemed like they understood the dynamic of each group coming in... great brunch food, excellent... Overall a very nice experience... Good ambiance to the bar area, wasnt crowded at all, cant speak to loudness...

This place is often packed to the gills and so loud that you have to scream to hear the other members of your party. The have a nice amount of outdoor seating for the warmer months. The staff is friendly and the food is very good for pub food. Not many entrees but a decent selection of very good sandwiches. They always have a nice selection of beers on tap including some surprises every once in a while. There are a lot of jocks who hang out there though.

The owner accidently named it after an improper stout pour (he thought it was a PROPER stout pour). Iíll stop by on weekdays (I work 6 blocks down Fairmount at Stoneís Beverage) but on the weekends itís overflowing with yuppies. Decent crabcakes and thatís saying a lot considering Iím usually dissappointed by most restaurantís crabcakes. And 90 minute for $3 a bottle? Sweet deal. Also, they have Fox Soccer Channel. Big plus in my book. Overall itís probably the best beer and food you can get on Fairmount for decent prices. Avoid it on weekend nights, unless youíre another yuppie.

This place was hopping on a sunday afternoon. interesting decor ranging from olde time movie posters, bobble heads, and pictures of monks. Tap selection was ok, nothing spectacular. First bar iíve seen in the city with bells on tap. i canít remember what else they had but they were solid. didnít look at the bottle collection. decent prices, oberon pint for $4. food menu seemed pretty good and cheap.

The selection is pretty nice, uually have a good variety of beligians, other imports, maybe a few local micros, and good stuff in bottles, fair prices. Itís a comfortable place. The patrons arenít always friendly and sometimes a bit over my age bracket and Iím not exactly a kid, itís perhaps slightly more normal people than me which is not bad to most people, but I feel like a suspicious person over there sometimes, to the patrons. The staff for their part are always nice and helpful, efficient, friendly. The food is just ok, good for a bar, but not the reason to come and youíd be better of dining at rembrandt or london and coming to drink here. Overall, pretty much one of the only good bars in a large area of the city; the best thing going closest to the art museum.

I saw this place on my way to visit the Eastern State prison (as a tourist, of course) and decided to stop by for some food and brew. Small pub with a few tables in the back for people who wanted to eat. Small but impressive beer selection in bottles and tap (about 10) which included winter warmers such as Samuel Smith winter ale and Delirium Noel, craft beer such as Victory Hop Wallop, and local like Yuengling. Good atmosphere. Above average pub food such as very nice fresh salads, crab cakes, and soups. When the waitress brought my beer, she did not bring a glass. Sacre Bleu! When I asked her for glass, she looked surprised! Most of the patrons were sucking their beer out of the bottle anyway. Decent place for a beer and good food if you are near the Philly Art Museum and are planning to visit the prison.
