Luis Héctor Valdez

I am a qualified Mexican brewmaster who enjoys walking the line between science and art in the brewing and beverage world. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I have come to appreciate that they are not just rigorously analyzed products but also artistic expressions of their creators.

Having previously worked with FlavorActiV from 2018 to 2020, I am thrilled to return in 2024 with enriched industry experiences. During my time away, I spearheaded brewing projects that clinched international awards in the Latin American brewing scene and served as a testament to our team’s hard work and innovation. Now, I bring my passion for sensory excellence to this dynamic and global role.

Besides brewing, I like to find joy in life’s simple pleasures. I savor my pour-over coffee hot, my mezcal at room temperature, my whisky cool, and my beer in any form. I also like spices in my food. In my leisure time, I am a music enthusiast who loves to listen to music, play instruments, or make noise from any object within reach. I also have a penchant for bad (dad?) jokes and puns – the worse, the better!
