A drayman today...
is a brewery delivery man. Beer is traditionally delivered on flat bed wagons/trucks or drays.
Some UK breweries still retain a team of shire horses and a traditional dray to attend beer festivals and pub openings etc.

I know that the wagon was called a dray..
because my old Yorkshire grandaddy used to say that the difference between a war-horse and a dray-horse was that the former would dart into the fray.

Nice one Bullus. Reminds me of the difference between a marksman and an incontinent owl. (One shoots and hits ...)
