Our Queso Is On The Moon

Our famous Queso went to the moon!

On February 22, 2019, Austin Mayor Steve Adler announced he had sent an official letter to extraterrestrials and future citizens of the solar system aboard the SpaceX Falcon rocket that launched out of Cape Canaveral, Florida, headed for the moon. Read Mayor Adler's Official Press Release Here.

Mayor Adler's letter included a copy of the original, authentic, never-before-published recipe for Kerbey Queso.

“We choose to send queso to the Moon – and maybe someday chips as well, not because these things are easy, but because they are hard,” said Mayor Adler. “The challenge to eat queso in zero gravity is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, among other key challenges, like next time remembering the chips.”

“We are so happy to take the recipe for our best selling item of all time to the moon,” said Kerbey Lane Cafe CEO Mason Ayer. “I suppose getting the ingredients together out there in space is a whole ‘nother story. But as central artifacts of civilization go, I can’t think of a more important, sustaining foodstuff. No archive, time capsule, library or vault is complete without queso. One day we hope the whole galaxy will benefit. Turns out, the moon isn’t really made of cheese. So we sent some.”

The SapceX Falcon rocket was scheduled to land on the moon April 11, 2019. Though the lander crashed on the moon, it is currently believed that materials sent to the moon are intact.
