Need to monitor your beer stash from any and everywhere? Bud Light has introduced a Wi-Fi connected fridge specifically designed for brews. The Bud Light Bud-E Fridge holds up to 78 beers (60 Bud Light bottles or 78 cans) and has an electronic display on the door. It also syncs with a smartphone app to send notifications about beer stock levels, football game schedules—and when someone is stealing from your reserve.

Developed by Linq IQ, the fridge has been officially licensed to Bud Light in the United States (currently only available in California) and to Budweiser in Canada. And location is everything. The fridge, currently listed for $299, has to be stored indoors and not in a garage (or mancave) because it’s “not made to work at temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.”
