Claremont’s dining scene is quite strong… with standouts like Some Crust Bakery, Viva Madrid! and Union on Yale. But it’s the beer where Claremont really shines, thanks to a Belgian beer-centric gastropub, the Back Abbey, and Claremont Craft Ales brewery. Claremont students aren’t lying when they say that they major in French and minor in Belgian beer thanks to the Back Abbey.
