Another vote for a wheat.

I've done a hefeweizen in 2 weeks, bottled-conditioned and carbed. 3 weeks with kegging should be no problem.

brew a pale ale let it ferment for a week and a half and then put in a keg and lightly dry hop in a bag the yeast should drop out by superbowl time and you should have a nice hop arroma and a nice clean beer

I vote APA. It's simple and 3 weeks gives you just enough time to dry hop it in secondary which is delicious and helps cover any green notes. (I just did this myself)

Like everyone else, a wheat beer is a great idea. Here's the one I've brewed in that situation, and it's always been a crowd pleaser.

PartyWeizen

The thing with Bavarian or Belgian Wheats is that people don't like them very much. Too much ester, too much clove in the taste. They don't go very well with party food. Instead I would go for an American Wheat, something with an Ale Yeast, like American Ale yeast or German Ale yeast (not Hefe yeast, but Kolsch yeast instead). Hops: Fuggle/Willamette, maybe mix it with Cascade for some citrusy taste. Serve it with an orange slice - and you got yourself a crowd pleaser! It goes great with chips and salsa, wings, whatever!

I disagree; my hefeweizen is one of my biggest hit beers among non-beer-folks, and the one I've had folks ask me to make for weddings and parties. American wheats generally have more prominent hopping levels, which tends to be more polarizing.
