Let's take a moment to acknowledge the importance of the alma mater. Let's raise our frosty glasses in honor of the cushy bosom of higher education in America and make a toast to the four-year crumple zone that softens our crash landing into the real world.
Only in those four, or five, or whatever, years can a man live in a tent on the sidewalk for days to get free student basketball tickets without judgment, or showering. Only in that twinkling of a cosmic instant does a man answer to the higher laws of tradition- the laws that allow him to sprint through the quad unencumbered by modesty or clothing, defile the sanctity of a home field by tearing down the goalposts, and release dozens of pigeons into the library during finals week.
And where else could we have learned the life skills needed to navigate the modern world? Skills like procrastination. Home-remedies for hangovers and athlete’s foot. The ability to open a beer bottle with anything that sinks in water.
The College Barware Man Crate pays homage to that special time. Dial in four officially licensed NCAA Pint Glasses, a classic bottle opener, and enough snacks to supplement a freshmen meal plan. It might be exactly the gear you need to drown out the alumni fund-raising calls, forget your crushing student debt, and relive the glory days.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

Ordered this set for Dad who happens to be a huge ASU fan. Got the box, had him recorded while opening and OOPS, Iowa Hawkeyes! Called up Customer Service, spoke with Riley and Charlie and these guys took care of the issue without hesitation. You DON'T get this type of customer service ANYWHERE!

My husband informed me that my Valentines Day gift would be arriving, so naturally when I found a box at my front door I was excited. Then came confusion....A Man Crate?????? I am not a man, what in the world could this be? My husband is quite the jokester so I assumed it was for him. Nevertheless, I found a pry bar and a crate, so I attempted to open it to no avail. First I went to the website to get instructions on how to open it and it didn't hit me at first, but the instructions were "TRY HARDER". At first I was using some colorful language, but then I realized that was the joke. Duh. After several minutes of attempting various ways to open it, I brought out the big guns...my big girl tools. Yes, you heard right, MY tools. My husband is always teasing me about my tools (because women apparently don't normally have their own tools), and with a little help from my chisel and the included pry bar, I rose to the challenge and success was mine. After my blood pressure went down from the initial frustration of trying to access the box, I laughed and really got into the challenge. Once opened, I found a set of Ohio State pint glasses and some treats!!! This is significant because I am from Texas and a huge Longhorn Fan, and this is my husband's attempt to convert me to his alma mater. I will admit, it may have worked! I love my gift almost as much as my husband. LOL Great gift and presentation. It was a super fun gift. Kudos to hubby!

Wow,I came home from work and found this package. I wondered, what is this? I hadn't ordered anything. Did I win something that I may have entered on line? I have to admit it was the most fun I ever had opening a gift. What a surprise, What a wonderful moment, What a great feeling! What beautiful friends I have that make me feel like family. Thank-you, Thank-you, I love you.

Got this for my boyfriend's dad who is a huge Seminoles fan and he LOVED it. Got a kick out of opening the crate on Christmas and was totally stoked at both the glassware and the coasters. Even more importantly, when he found an imperfection on one of the glasses, Man Crates customer service was AWESOME- way above and beyond - will definitely order from here again!

my husband is huge texas fan and I got him texas barware. Unfortunately the crate was already opened when we opened the package. We contacted man crate and they were happy to do replacement order. Since we already had texas barware, i ordered moscow mule. We had great time opening the crate which is the usp of this product. Perfect gift for a man.!!

The crate was a huge hit. Everybody loved it, including the recipient.
When opened, it was packaged perfectly and all items were awesome.
This will be the place for me to purchase other crates and maybe a few other boxes.

I bought this for my hard to buy for brother in law, he is 76 years old and has everything, that was until he got the College Bar ware Crate! I had it wrapped in duct tape, he had no idea what was in the box. He had a great time opening it, he was really laughing. He loved the whole box! Whew I don't think I can top this gift! Wonderful crate!

I ordered this for my fiance' for our anniversary and he ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! We loved it so much and it was such an easy process we ordered one for his dad for his birthday. And I'm pretty sure I'm getting my brother one and my dad one for Christmas. I found Man Crates by searching for gift baskets for men on Google...and this takes a gift basket to whole new level! Thanks Man Crates! You will be my new resource for gifts for the men in my life!

I bought my boyfriend the college bar ware set for our anniversary and he absolutely loved it! Every single piece of the crate he was raving about! Too bad he didn't get me anything, so we went our separate ways, but at least I get the satisfaction of knowing I bought a badass gift for my ex and he will get to look at it and think of me :) Thank you Man Crates!
