If you misplace your car, that button on the keyless remote sets off the auto's alarm system so you can find your ride. There are invisible electric fences to keep dogs from running away. We have leashes that attach to kids so they won't stray.

But here's the key question for this week's beer issue: Is there any kind of gadget to keep tabs on that beer you've been drinking? You betcha!

The Beer Pager ($30 at drinkingstuff.com) is dedicated to keeping you and your brewski united. Just slip your drink into the beer-koozie unit; from then on, if you get distracted (or get too much of a buzz on) just press the red button on the remote you hung from your belt loop. That belch you hear (or the flashing LED light you see) is coming from the can or bottle you almost lost.

Using a Beer Pager means never needing a coaster. It'll also keep your beer chilled. The gadget's remote can trigger an alarm from up to 60 feet away, and can even work through walls.

If you rarely put your beer down long enough for it to get lost, there's another way for you to be the talk of any party. Bring along a Bobble Babes Can Cooler or Bobble Babes Bottle Bra (each is $10 at drinkingstuff.com).

These koozies sport plastic babes with spring-loaded boobs that jiggle as you drink or move your beverage. As the product literature says, "Give it a wiggle and watch her jiggle!" If only real life was that predictable.

If you're a true drinking aficionado and hate that they don't sell beer at the 'Shoe (or feel penalized by the cost of a brew at a Blue Jackets game), try the Beer Belly Deluxe ($50 at drinkingstuff.com).

As you might suspect, this gadget is a stealth beverage holder that looks just like a bountiful beer belly when hidden under your shirt. However, fill this unique "belly pack" with beer and you can drink whatever brand you want, wherever you want and at a price you can afford. This deluxe product comes with a polyurethane beer bladder, ice pack and Beer Belly cleaner.

If you really love beer, can you afford to be without these gadgets?
