Default Grain to glass in 2 weeks suggestions

So the wife (mostly) and I (less so) decided we're having a holiday open house/ party in 2 weeks. Timing couldn't be worse w/r/t my supply right now. I just kicked one keg and the other seems to have only 1/4 left.

So now this weekend I'd like to brew two batches. Both need to be drinkable in 14 days.

Looking for some recipe thoughts in here. What came to mind first was BM's Centennial Blonde but I'd also like something a little more seasonal. I have a smoked porter recipe that is passable in two weeks. What about a nice dry stout? I've never made one but a low abv dry irish stout would be good. Would it be ready in two weeks?

I think passable is accurate in this time frame. I would think you would need to have a very low gravity beer to fit this short time frame.

You can probably make a hefe to be drinkinable within two weeks. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/hefeweizen-73242/
In the second post, Beerific says he got that recipe from grain to glass in two weeks. Edwort also has a Bavarian Hefe Recipe on here, I'd try for something like that.

The only beer I got ready within 2 weeks was a Coopers Mexican Cerveza canned kit
...given I haven't tried one of those mentioned recipes yet. Will be making one mid December though! Goodluck!

Low abv is the key. Now i know why I thought of the Centennial Blonde:

Hefe is another good idea, although I equate those with summertime.

Do a Belgian Wit with WLP400 yeast - it's super quick if fermented at the right temps

This is pretty darn close to Goose Islands 312

90% pale 2-row
10% torrified wheat

1/2oz cascade @ 15 minutes
1/2oz cascade @ 0 minutes

Shoot for 20-23 ibu's and no more than 5% abv. Use white labs 007 and O2 if you have it. FYI, 312 goes from grain to bottle in 9 days.

I don't have the ability to get any more yeast but I do have a good variety on hand:

s-05
s-04
wy1272 (washed)
wy1099 - propigator
wy1028 - prop
wyeast belgian wit

I'm not familiar with 312? What is it?

You think he'd get 20-23 IBU's with that hop schedule?

S-05 clears fast! maybe do a blonde ale and a pale?

S04 clears faster, I'd use that at low temps.
