I can think of three good bottleshops (all w/ taps in case you want a growler) that are located on bus lines from downtown:
Bottleworks (http://bottleworksbeerstore.blogspot.com/): Probably the shop I frequent the most. Take the 16 to Wallingford.
Last Drop (http://www.lastdropbeershop.com/): Take the 71,72, or 73 north from downtown and get off at 80th.
Beer Authority (http://www.seattlebeerauthority.com/): probably the quickest trip from downtown on the 522. get off at the 125th St stop in Lake City and walk north a couple of blocks.
Lots of other pub/beer places noted on the map: http://g.co/maps/4m5pk
