A 102-room “brewtel” with a craft beer theme plans to tap into the local craft beer scene by growing hops on its rooftop to sell to a local brewer.

Slated to open in early 2021, it will employ 40 full-time and an unspecified number of seasonal workers

The Cambria Hotel chain’s first property in Maine will be located at 25 Hancock St. among the new WEX and Covetrus headquarters buildings and Shipyard Brewing near the city’s east end.

The six-story hotel will have an indoor-outdoor bar on the rooftop, where owners also plan to grow hops for partner Shipyard and serve local food on a menu curated by celebrity chef Fabio Vivani.
