Cobbled together a few desk lamps to light this.

slight Rotate and Crop
decreased Exposure slightly
selective Dodge and Burn
increased Contrast

Not at all sure how this will do. I had other more elaborate ideas (Goblin hands coming into the frame from the darkness and grabbing the pint), but I know nothing about studio lighting, and have no proper lights, so I went with simpler is better.

Lighting and ambiance is perfect. Nice negative space leaves room for text. Sweet ad.

The dark lighting of the bottle and bright light on the glass works well for you.

Nice lighting. The centered composition, and actually, the space between the bottle and glass looks odd.
