SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania-based media company has purchased a majority interest in New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewing Company.

The owners of Scranton’s Times-Shamrock Communications made the announcement Friday. The company, owned by the Lynett and Haggerty families, publishes a number of daily and community newspapers in northeast Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland and Virginia.

Bobby Lynett, a publisher of The Times-Tribune, tells the newspaper (https://bit.ly/1PZa8ze ) the family’s expertise in marketing and promotions will help the brewery continue to grow.

Gene Muller, founder of Somerdale, New Jersey-based Flying Fish, says he began looking for new partners when some initial investors began cashing out.

The terms of the deal, finalized on March 11, weren’t released.

Lynett, Times-Tribune publisher Matthew Haggerty and Times-Tribune publisher George Lynett Jr. will have spots on Flying Fish’s board of directors.
