“Mod Pod IPA honors our three pods of Southern Resident Orca whales living full-time in the Puget Sound, the J, K, and L Pods. In particular, we think of Granny (J-2) who was considered to have been the oldest orca in the world when she died in 2016 after 107 years of gracing our waters,” said Matt Lincecum, Fremont Brewing CEO. “Granny was the Matriarch of the Southern Resident Community, and we brew Mod Pod IPA in her honor. Enjoy and observe.”
