Beer does not spoil in the same ways as other drinks. When a beer spoils, the taste characteristics change, not so much the texture. Most beers retain their quality for about 6 months. If stored properly, it should still taste good for an additional 4-6 months.

Where is the proxy port number located

In real life, a "proxy" is a person empowered to make decisions on your behalf.
In the world of computers, a "proxy-server" is a computer that holds data, and it's located "between" your computer and the computer that holds the authoritative answer. The advantage is that a proxy-server may be able to send some data to you faster than the authoritative server. Compare to going to your beer-fridge for one bottle of beer, rather than going to the beer-store to get one (or more) bottles.

Typically, web-browsers that are configured to interface with proxy-servers try to connect to port '8080' on the proxy-server.

What is the shelf life for cmos battery

If you mean how long will it normally last in use, the answer is typically several years 2-3. On the shelf, not being used, it is probably about 4-6 years. Actual results will vary depending on when the battery was actually made (and therefore how long it was sitting on the shelf before it reached you) as well as how it has been stored. Cool dry conditions lead to long shelf life, whereas hot humid, tend to reduce shelf life.

Used as beer fridge but contents freezing

The defrost timer in the unit is probably bad take a look at it there should be a timer with a slot in it around the thermostat that you can turn with a common screwdriver the timer should click and go into defrost mode and the unit should shut off, if the unit shuts off and it still doesn't defrost you either have a thermal cut-out that is bad in the freezer next to the heater element or the heater element itself is bad. Let us know :-)

Danby Beer Keg dispenser fridge.

Draught (or Draft) beer is almost always un-pasteurized and therefore is more fragile. It should be consumed after being "tapped", and is generally truer to the flavors of the ingredients as pasteurization exposes the beer to heat and changes the flavor profile. Always use brewery approved beer line if you want to have foam free fresh tasting beer. Serving it through a plastic tube from the hardware or discount store or the plain vinyl tubing in your beer tap system you will wind up with a foamy, off tasting beer. Real draught beer is not pasteurized. It must be kept refrigerated between 35F. and 44F. A beer will become wild, turn sour and cloudy in a day or two. Below 44F. a keg of draught beer should last 20-30 days before it loses it's fresh brewery taste and aroma. Craft beers (micro brews) tend to have a shorter shelf life and you should contact the brewery for their recommendations. Why does my beer foam up? The 3 most often causes of beer foaming up are: The temperature of the beer keg The balance of the draught beer system pressures The cleanliness of the draught beer system I would suggest that you clean or replace the beer transport tube...
