Default What's your favorite "I need it fast" beer?

I just upgraded to a 6 tap system. (from 3)and I want to get a few fast beers in there. Any suggestions?

I was figuring a cream ale would be one of them. So I know you can't rush perfection... But I just want a few fill in beers that have been brewed and turned out good with a short window.

Thanks

Orfy's Mild is very quick. From brewing to drinking from keg in ~14 days is possible.

A few of my favorites are English mild, brown ale, and ordinary bitters. All of which can be ready in about two weeks.

Any low to mid gravity beer with the fast flocculating English yeast strain. The English ale yeast is amazingly fast fermenting and flocs out clear in a day or two. You could probably ferment in 7 days and go straight to the keg.

I've done my Kentucky Common 11 days grains to glass and it was a hit. Back before prohibition it was meant to be a cheap, quick turnaround beer.
