Combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour and all the remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, beer, eggs, and water, then mix well and add to the dry ingredients. Divide the batter in half. To first half of the batter, add the Italian parsley, hot cherry peppers, garlic and Parmesan and mix well. To the other half, add the jalapenos, cilantro and dry jack. Combine well.
Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pot to 375 degrees F. Cut the sausages into thirds and dredge them in the remaining 1 cup flour. Coat the Italian-style sausages in the hot pepper batter and the Spanish-style sausages in the jalapeno batter. Fry the sausages, in batches, until golden, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and serve immediately.
