What a waste of beer.

Search through the forum and you will find many threads where many different kinds of liquids have come into contact with BB's. The basic idea is to pull the battery as fast as possible and really let the BB dry for a couple of days. If needed, you may have to take the BB apart and clean it out so the keys aren't sticky. Check the FAQ's for instructions.

Alcohol abuse!

I'd be asking how I could salvage the beer from the BB

Sounds like the keyboard is wet inside.

This is a pretty good thread about how to rinse/wash the BB.
