It's a little difficult to answer your question. Is the spicket you are referring to the beer out post on the keg? And when you ask if "it" is ruined are your referring to the beer or the beer out post?

If the beer out post was leaking, wouldn't the beer be in a big puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator?

That's what I'm thinking but really don't understand what he is referring to.

Any beer left in the keg would be fine. I wouldn't drink any at the bottom of the fridge, though.

Ha ok it is the "in" post where the grey disconnect attaches. It is leaking out the top. I went ahead and replaced the post. My big fear was the beer becoming oxygenated over the past week with a leak
