Heat cooking oil in a deep frying pan. Using tongs, pick a piece of calamares, dip into beer batter, dredge in flour-cayenne mixture, and deep fry in oil for about a minute. Do not overcook or the calamares will be tough and rubbery.

Repeat for the rest of the calamares. Drain on paper towel. Serve with your choice of dip.
