Bottled and canned draught beers are very popular Steve.

I know it's popular KKOB but my point was that as soon as you put it in a bottle it can not be called draught beer.
 
Wikipedia - Draught beer, also spelt draft, is beer served from a cask or keg rather than from a bottle or can.
 
Collins Dictionary - Draught beer (noun) beer which is stored in bulk, esp in a cask, as opposed to being bottled.

Oxford English - Draught Beer (noun) beer that is stored in and served from a large container, usually a barrel. Many people who know a lot about beer think draught beer is better than beer sold in bottles or tins.

The Beer, Wine & Spirits Association - When you see this term plastered on beer cans, then it should be called Canned Draught as the can contains a "widget" (invented by Guinness) to artificially carbonate the beer to make it taste like a draught beer.

Advertising it as such is like selling unsliced ham in slices.   :)

Thanks for taking the time to post an explanation Steve. Having worked for Boddington's in the early 90's it was a bit wasted on me though.   ;)
