Photographing beer bottles

I used to collect beer bottles and over the years it has got to be too much. I then thought about photographing the bottles and just have some sort of "digital collection." I'm having problems with where to set the lights for a more dramatic effect. I'm also having a hard time with the reflection of the lights in the bottle (especially on the curves).

I'm just using household lighting like: table lamps, ceiling lights, and a Craftsman garage light on a stand. I am wondering if anyone could help me with this. Any pointers will be appreciated. Thank you.
