My basement is the same temp, and you can do ales and lagers by selecting the right yeast.
I like S-04, and Pacman for Ales as they can tolerate the lower temps.. makes a really clean beer! Kolsch yeast also works nicely at these temps to make a pseudo lager. You can also make a little swamp cooler and by swapping a frozen 2 litre pop bottle out every 12 hours, can easily get the temp down to 50.
