maybe a hefeweizen? two weeks isn't really long enough. maybe brew a russian imperial stout or something really big and strong and then drink it when he gets back. party!
'Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne.'

Keep it simple and pitch plenty of healthy yeast and you can have a great beer in 2 weeks. Something like 90% 2 row, 7% munich, 3% crystal 40 and hopped with 2 oz cascade at 60 min 1 oz at 30 min and 1 oz at 5 min will make a nice pale ale that should be done easy by then if you can keg and force carbonate.

As stated above, wheat beers are also good fresh.
