The head brewer in sake breweries is called a Toji, and he is both the quarterback and the coach. Tojis go through years and years of training and most belong to local (prefecture) guilds that develop and espouse a certain style. Toji guilds are an on-going way to better educate these masters, and the systematic sharing of information lends itself to influencing certain styles within regions in regards to the flavors and nuances of local sakes.
