Draft vs. Draught | Clearing The Air


Draft beer or draught beer — what's the difference? Is one better than the other? 

According to Wikipedia, “The words "draft" and "draught" have been used as marketing terms to describe canned or bottled beers, implying that they taste and appear like beers from a cask or keg. Commercial brewers use this as a marketing tool although it is incorrect to call any beer not drawn from a cask or keg "draught.”

So now the question is, is there a difference? Well, according to Writing Explained Draught and draft are different spellings of the same word. But, these spellings are used in different parts of the world and at different times.” That's right they are the exact same thing. Draught is more commonly used in European spellings, whereas draft is more prevalent in American English.
