Default What is your fav. way to clear your palate for next type of beer?

How do you change from one style of beer to the next w/out having the first style mess up the next style's taste? Do you clear/clean/cleanse the pallet with food? If so, what is the best food? I have a really hard time enjoying very diverse styles of beer in one sitting unless I have brot's or at least pretzels but they hardly cut it.

A small piece of bread and water typically does it for me.

Or you could move from more mild styles to more powerful styles. There's not much you can do to help your palate after and IIPA if you're trying to pull out the subtle complexities of a much more balanced beer.

Just like wine tasting: cracker, bread or pretzel + water

I actually find that a very small amount of scotch (Johnnie Walker Black Label) takes care of that pretty well. Its like hitting the reset button

Gargle water. That seems to get the lingering tastes completely out of my mouth. Either that, or drink two. The first one to clear the pallete, and the second to taste fully.
