The label was inspired by the Pig’s Eye Brewing Company, although they make beer, not “hard liquor.” I was amused by the story of the company,  “named after Piere “Pig’s Eye” Parrant, a probably French-Canadian man who became the first resident of Saint Paul and operated a tavern out of Fountain Cave near what is now downtown.”*

The breakfast is inspired because drinking makes me hungry for greasy food.
