I didn’t know that there was draft beer back in the days of dinosaurs. I should have paid closer attention to “The Flintstones” when I was a kid. Maybe I would have seen Fred and Barney tossing back a few. But I’m grateful to Yahoo! News for introducing me to this revelation:
Of course, the writer might have meant a different kind of draught, like the breeze you feel when you live in Vermont and it’s winter and the windows aren’t caulked. Whatever. It’s just odd to me that the writer chose the British spelling draught, while we here in the States refer to it as draft. And I didn’t know that a draught could lead to dehydration. That sounds more like a drought to me.
