The Bishop’s Collar is a fairly new bar, it open in 1999. Upon entering there is a nice dark wood bar on the right, it spans about half the length of the room. There are 2 Tv’s at each end of the bar. On the left hand wall there are a couple of tables and what appears to be a church pew. In the back area there is a small dinning area. On they have Guinness, Harp, Hiny, Yeungling, Yards, Woodchuck, Hoegaarden, John Courage, Bass, NewCastle, Anchor Steam, SN Pale ale, and Rogue. They also have a decent bottle selection.
JFI-Wondering what Bishop Collar means? Bishop's Collar is an expression used for a perfectly poured pint of Guinness: When poured right it brings to mind a Bishop's Collar.

Located in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia, this is a nice little neigborhood bar. The bar is on your right as you walk in with seating along the wall on the left, and straight back. Lot's of dark wood and a pretty good selection of about 10 beers on tap. Bottle selection includes Bell's Kalamazoo Stout, Duchesse de Bourgogne and a few other finds you wouldn't expect from a small place like this. Taps usually include local brands (Victory, Stoudt's) with some national crafts (Rogue, Sierra Nevada, Anchor). A few other good bars in the area, so you can just stumble around for a while if you want.
