Oktoberfest, the 17-day stein-clanking, pretzel-munching pride and joy of Germany, is actually very American when you think about it. Nothing screams “Freedom!” louder than gorging one’s self on another culture’s delicacies while drinking liters gallons of beer in a foreign land with friends and festive strangers.
In true American fashion, we’ve decided to do Oktoberfest better than the people who invented it by making it last longer--much longer. The Oktoberfest Man Crate is America’s greatest innovation: 365 Days of Oktoberfest.
Say what you will about Germans, their outlandish haircuts, and complete inability to comprehend sarcasm (and believe us, we do), but those Deutschlanders sure know how to appreciate a good brew. The glass stein is reserved for the no-nonsense beer drinker.
Forever unite yourself with the Spirit of Oktober by etching your name into a glass Oktoberfest stein. And for the record, just because this mammoth of a mug can hold enough beer for two does not mean you’re obligated to share. Your name is permanently engraved on it for a reason.
The crate also contains two Oktoberfest stein-sized coaster/bottle openers. One to rest underneath your personalized stein, and another to get your reload primed for pouring.
It’s not Oktober unless you’re importing Germany’s finest traditional foods like Bavarian salami and summer sausage, pretzels, and Inglehoffer Stone Ground Mustard straight into your chomper chamber. And if you’re looking for “authentisch Sauerkraut”, Saverne’s Artisanal “Craft Beer” Kraut is as authentically German as a jolly mountaineer prancing around in Lederhosen yodeling David Hasselhoff’s “Looking for Freedom”.
Keep Oktober as your state of mind all the time with the Oktoberfest Crate.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

You guys rock! I bought this for my brother in law as a belated birthday gift. He loved it! The Cherry on top was I got the duct tape wrapping. I got picture updates for an hour while he tried to figure out the complex box. It felt like a gift to me! haha. Once he got it open he was really excited to see the stein. Great work as always! You guys keep me coming back.

Just wanted to say ‘Thank You’ for giving my son and I a different/out of the ordinary gift for my husband.
He totally enjoyed the feast and was extremely surprised with the Oktoberfest Stein crate. He called us that day it arrived.
Everything was perfect!
Unfortunately, due to my husband not being home for Father’s Day, we couldn’t take any photo’s to pass to you.
I will, definitely, let my family and friends know of your web site.
Keep up the good work!!
We will return.
Again, a BIG Thank you to everyone!

Ordered this for my boyfriend's birthday and when it arrived, the lid on the crate was broken already. When I called, they were incredibly helpful and sent me a new case in just 3 days! My boyfriend LOVED the gift and was showing it off to all of his friends (they were so jealous!). I'll definitely be purchasing from ManCrates again!

Ordered this crate for my friend's birthday, he loved it until he saw the expiration date on the pretzels was a month ago.. Then we started wondering how long the other perishables have been sitting in storage...
MAN CRATES EDIT:
Hey there Walter, so sorry to hear that your pretzels arrived past their expiration date! We do our best to track the expiration dates on every item we pack to ensure that none of the items you receive are expired, or near expiring, Looks like one pesky bag slipped past our quality control in the warehouse, and made its way to you. We would be happy to replace that bag for you free of charge, give us a call at 866-902-7260 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make it right, thanks!

My sisters and I sent this as a gift to our 91 year old Grandpap and he LOVED it! Called us the same day as delivery and was impressed with not only the contents but the crate itself. If you are looking for that hard to buy for person, look no further! Man Crates is the way to go!

I sent this to my dad for his 70th. I even did the duct tape treatment. He absolutely loved it. Said he was saving everything...even the duct tape! Perfect gift!

There were some challenges getting this delivered, but the customer service rocked in resolving my issue! My son loved his stein! The only sad thing was the sauerkraut container broke during shipping, so everything in the crate smelled like it! But still my son appreciated it and thought the packing was cool. I'd order from this company again in a heartbeat.
MAN CRATES EDIT:
Hey there, sorry to hear about your exploding Sauerkraut!! Hopefully we've helped make that right for you, if not, give us a buzz at 866-902-7260!

My dad is German and since his birthday is in October, I thought this would be the coolest Christmas present. The crate was a bit difficult to go into, but it was hilarious trying to watch my dad get into it. He loved all the stuff inside and immediately put the giant mug in the freezer. I can't wait to get more of these for the men in my life.

I purchased this crate for a late 20's nephew for Christmas and when he was handed his "duct taped" crate you could see a kid on Christmas morning came out in him. Finally got through the wrapping and saw the Mancrate and pry bar and he was pumped. He couldn't wait to get after it, the family had just as much fun watching him open the crate as he was.
Unfortunately the stein and kraut suffered damage from shipping. Emailed Customer Service on Monday at noon and Mancrate overnighted another crate out to Indiana delivered on Wednesday morning.
Not only a great gift idea with quality contents but what customer service.
5-Stars for concept, contents and customer service.
You have made buying gifts for men easy and fun.

I love this website! It saved my butt 3 times this christmas! I purchased 2 of these crates, one for my brother and one for an old friend who lives far away. They both LOVED their personalized mugs and the entire crate! I had a slight issue with some of the etching on one of the mugs, but they quickly resolved the issue beyond my expectations and even discounted my order! I also bout the "Smash Me" gift brick for my boss and he was over the moon about it! This site fills a need in gifting for men, I love it and due to their excellent customer service I am completely satisfied and plan to use the site for my dads birthday in March, and all my unique gifting needs! Great site, great gifts, and great value. I can't say enough Mancrates! Thank you for pleasing the men in my life!!!

I got this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. It was our first holiday together, so I was at a loss for gift ideas until a friend told me about this site!
It was perfect! He's a beer fan, and his birthday is in October, so it fit perfectly.
Watching him open it up was pretty funny, although the crowbar was a bit useless against the wood glue.
I'm definitely a huge fan of this site & your products! He used the stein & the coasters right away :)
