Mrs Kangler said it was a "very special" beer because it was a very heavy, strong lager at 6.7% alcohol.

But while their beer is sold at some local restaurants and bottle shops, she said interest in other towns was stronger.

"I think it's because Gladstone's a relatively small town ... we've found that further down south there's more interest.

"There's more variety of beers further south, so I think that's why it's more popular there," she said.

Mrs Kangler compared the Southern Reef to The Capricornia, another Indian pale ale the couple brew.

Already they have almost sold out.

"This is another heavy, smoky beer.

"We have some restaurants and bars that give us plenty of support and most of them ordered without even tasting it," she said.

It has been just over one year since Baffle Beer brewed its first beverage.

"We're in touch with friends in Germany and other countries so we get some inspiration from them so our beers are a mix of traditional styles with our new ideas."
