Maintaining quality converting from RAW to JPG/PNG

So I've been tinkering with conversion a bit more. I started off not too happy with the results, but have found some of my later results acceptable (btw using Pentax K-X).

Now I can't upload the original, but the head (foam) in the Magic Hat glass was much more defined in the original shot compared to this. I tried Nearest neighbor, which kept the foam detail intact but the whole right of the glass was jagged. I resorted to Bicubic Sharper, which stops the jaggies, but at the sacrifice of some "image pop". Anyway to get around this?

Oh and here's my best shot (I think so far). The right edge got clipped a little too much but I got sick of tinkering with it.

I don't see the software mentioned, but I assume it is the Pentax variety that came with the camera. So, I can't help there. Without samples of the problem, it will be difficult for others, too.

The B&W shot might benefit from higher contrast and leveling the horizon.
