If you hit City Beer, you can have the best of both worlds. They're a kind of "bottle shop pub" that will let you crack open a bottle in the store or buy it to take with you. They also have a good stock of both the IPAs and a bunch of the "-tion" Belgian-style beers. They don't have much on tap, but you can be sure that what they have will be good.
I'm not sure about the ones in SF, but the Whole Foods in Oakland keeps a nice stock of Russian River stuff, too, and their prices are really good.
