Yeah, no tripod yet. Plus in the second one, I was leaning over the table (doesn't help, I know.). I guess these won't be keepers then :/..Aside from those things, do you think the PP was ok? That's more of what I was wondering about. That and the concept itself (something I had been thinking about doing for a while).
Not sure what PP you did other then a B&W conversion... If you can fill us in on that, then that'll help...
Disregarding the blurry and OOF nature of the photos, I think they are a bit flat, ie, not enough contrast. I don't like the picture in B&W either... I think if you are going to shoot "beer" bottles, especially ones with such dynamic colors as Mike's Hard Lemonade, color might be more interesting, leading to the next comment...
The background also needs help, but that's a bit nit-picky and I know you are more interested in concept and processing.
For the first one, from the side, it would be more interesting if you could see the front of the labels. I find the text and UPC label distracting.
For the from the top, it might be nice if they weren't empty, and the caps were still on them.
Also, try a different bottle, maybe a really interesting micro brew or something like that.
I hope this is what you are looking for and I'm not killing your desire to shoot this kind of shot again
