Sorry, I was doing too many things at once and that came out wrong.

What I meant is that "let the water dry from the keyboard" would technically be wrong.

I guess, but you hear people saying it sometimes.

People say things like "I play guitar good." all the time. Doesn't make it right.  :P

So no matter how some one says it or if water is actually dry or not the best bet for the OP would be to buy a new keyboard.

It might be "right" in the local informal spoken dialect.

Joe Sixpack: I play guitar goodly!
Bill Blowhard: What's that, Joe? Don'cha mean "good"?

I've seen keyboards come back from contact with liquids, and seem none the worse for wear.  The odds are not good.

Sometimes, resale stores are a great place to get inexpensive keyboards.  Yes, they're used, but (for example) I got the Dell branded ergonomic keyboard I currently have at a Goodwill store for $1.99 US.  It was hardly used. 

My better half has picked up several there -- she likes the old-timey keyboards.

If the new keyboard is dry. Do not ask for an EXACT replacement.

    I think even if your keyboard recovers from the beer spill out there will be a tendency for your key board to have beer again. So it is always advisable to replace the key board otherwise the cost of operating your system will be too high
